Ingredients

Nachos

  • 8 wonton wrappers

  • 4oz super lump crab meat

  • 4oz shredded Tillamook Medium Cheddar

  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 1 lime, quartered

  • Chives to garnish

Cream Cheese Béchamel

  • 2 cups Tillamook Cream Cheese Spread

  • 1/2 stick butter, melted

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 1 tbsp MSG

  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

  • Salt to taste

  • Hot water as needed

Tools

  • Blender

  • Wire rack

  • Sheet tray

Directions

Method

  1. Add the cream cheese, sesame oil, msg and black pepper to a blender and turn on low.

  2. Slowly stream in the melted butter and increase the speed as you go. If the sauce is too thick stream in hot water until desired consistency is reached.

  3. Add salt to taste as the msg provides some salinity.

Assembly

  1. Fry the wonton wrappers for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Drain on a paper towel to remove any access oil.

  2. Top each wonton with 1/2 oz of crab meat and 1/2 oz of cheddar.

  3. Place on a wire rack on a sheet tray and cook in a 400 degree oven, about 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

  4. Next, place 2-3 slices of jalapeño on each nacho and drizzle the cream cheese sauce on top.

  5. Garnish with the sliced scallions and chives. Serve with the lime on the side.
