Who doesn't love the exquisite Chinese Dumplings? The variety of flavour and cooked options they offer are infinite. Also they are very tasty and nutritious. This 2022 is the year of the Tiger, and we want to celebrate Chinese New Year with an exotic dumplings recipe. Beck Johnson helped us creating this mouth-watering Mexican Style Dumplings for this exciting occasion. Enjoy!

Method

  1. Peel and dice the onion into pretty big chunks. Peel a garlic clove, smash onto a board with the flat side of a knife and chop into rough pieces.
  2. Add 2 tbsp olive oil to a medium saucepan on medium heat
  3. Reduce to medium low and add the onion and garlic and fry off, covering with a lid and stirring occasionally for 5 mins
  4. Add the bay leaves and beans and simmer for a couple of mins
  5. Add the hot water, turn back up to medium heat and simmer with a lid on for 5-10 mins. Season well.
  6. Whilst the stew cooks, lay out your wonton wrappers, wet all the sides, add 1 heaped tsp of huitlacoche to the centre of the wrappers, and fold all 4 corners in until you have a peak
  7. Pinch the folds together tightly - where 2 sides have joined together
  8. Set aside and repeat with 4-5 dumplings per person
  9. When all the dumplings are folded, add them to the stew and cover with the lid for about a minute
  10. Add the stew to bowls, followed by 4-5 dumplings per person. Top with coriander, spring onions, chilli oil and epazote (if you have it)
