  • To ensure the best flavor, look for chive & onion cream cheese from an 8-oz container.
  • For a more intense flavor, use cooked shrimp that has been well-drained.

  • Substitute vegetable oil with coconut oil for a healthier option. Coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids which can help improve cholesterol levels and aid in weight loss.
  • Substitute chive & onion cream cheese with plain cream cheese for a milder flavor. This will allow the flavor of the shrimp and plum sauce to be the main focus of the dish.

Cheesy Bacon Wontons Replace the chive and onion cream cheese with bacon cream cheese and top with crumbled bacon before baking for 1 minute longer.
