Japanese Inspired Nachos


  • 1 pack of wonton wrappers

  • Vegetable oil

  • 4 tablespoons Sesame rice seasoning

  • 1/3 cup scallions, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella

  • 1/3 Cucumber, chopped

  • 1/2 an avocado, cubed

  • 1/4 cup sriracha

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise


  1. Pour 1 inch of vegetable oil in a dutch oven and heat to 350˚F. Slice each wrapper into triangles. Fry in batches 15-20 seconds each side until golden and crisp. Let drain on a paper towel and then transfer to a bowl and toss in rice seasoning. Repeat in batches.

  2. Place the chips on a baking sheet and sprinkle the cheese over top. Melt in the oven on broil keeping a close eye not to burn the chips. Complete with remaining toppings. For the sriracha mayo, combine both ingredients and mix well before drizzling over nachos.

- These nachos are inspired by Japanese sort of flavors. So I don't want to say they're Japanese nachos because that is not my place, but I happen to love these flaves, and I wanted to put them together and see if they make good nachos. First, what I'm going to do is fry up some wonton wrappers. What do you think about those for chips? So I got a little bit of vegetable oil in my skillet here that I'm going to get to 350 degrees. And then over here under this wet paper towel, I got my wonton wrappers! And I keep them like that so they stay moist and don't dry out. So, we're gonna cut them into chips. And now, because these wonton wrappers are fairly small I'm just going to cut them in half, just slice all the way through. Cool! And then we're going to fry these a few at a time. Make sure I flip them. It will only take 30 seconds maximum. And I don't even think they'll take that long. When they're all done, I'm going to drain them on this plate with a little paper towel and of course, you can use salt if you wanted to flavor your chips, but I got this great little rice seasoning. It's got sesame seeds, some seaweed, a little bit of soy sauce, other seasonings. I'm just going to sprinkle that really lightly on the top. Okay, got all my chips done. They look amazing. Now this next step is optional, but I'm a big cheese lover, so I'm going to put cheese and Mozzarella in fact on these nachos, but you can totally skip this step if you're like, "ooh I don't know about Mozzarella Cheese "and seaweed" for example. It tastes delicious in case you're wondering. So, I'm gonna place these on a baking sheet that's covered with a little bit of parchment paper and then I've got a little freshly grated Mozzarella Cheese. So I'm going to sprinkle over top. I'm a big fan of sprinkling in layers. So if you want to get under some of those chips. Cool, so I'm just going to pop this under the broiler 'til the cheese is nice and melted, and then we'll get the toppings on. Okay, so out of the oven, these smell amazing! Now, I'm going to start on the toppings. So, I've already chopped up a little bit of cucumber. I just like sprinkling it all around. Then I got some finely sliced scallions. I'm going all green with this one. If you wanted to use traditional toppings, you totally could. I like the color of those. Of course I gotta go with some green avocado. And for the final touch, one of my all time favorite Japanese things that they do is some Sriracha Mayo. I got it in a tube because I want to be drizzling! Oh yes! Look at that. Oh my God, I wish you can smell this! ♫ I'm gonna get it ♫ Gonna get it I'm gonna get this one. It's got a little bit of everything. A little bit of cheese, a little bit of avocado. Mmm that's a crispy chip. If you go with the wonton wrapper, it's light, every time. Just bubbles. You need to find more ways to eat Sriracha Mayo in your life. This is gonna be one of them. Sushi is obviously another. Outstanding! Thank you so much for watching this video! I hope you enjoy it. I hope you get a chance to do your own weird spin on nachos. And, I'll see you next time.
