Black Bean Triangle Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1 can black beans or 2 cups cooked black beans
  • ¾ cup corn
  • ½ cup minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 egg

 

Directions:

  1. Over low heat, sauté the minced onion and garlic in about 2 tablespoons of oil on the griddle until translucent.
  2. Add the cumin, chili powder, and cinnamon to the onion mixture and cook for 2 minutes to allow the flavors to bloom. Add the corn and cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently to blend the flavors.
  3. Set aside to cool in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  4. If using canned beans, rinse the beans and drain, removing as much liquid as possible.
  5. Combine the beans with the corn and onion mixture.
  6. Make an egg wash by whisking together the egg with 1 tablespoon cold water.
  7. Assemble the bites by laying a wonton wrapper on a dry work surface.
  8. Arrange the wrapper with a point at the top. This will make for easier assembly.
  9. Use a pastry brush or even your finger to paint a light coating of egg wash on the left and right side of the wrapper. Start at one of the corners and cover the outer ½ inch of the wrapper with egg wash on the top half of the wrapper. Repeat with the other corner.
  10. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling on the bottom third of the wrapper above the lower point.
  11. Fold from the bottom up making a triangle. Make sure no filling touches the outermost ½ inch of the triangle.
  12. Use your finger to completely seal the top and bottom of the wrapper together. Optionally, you can also crimp the edges of the wrapper for a decorative seal.
  13. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400F.
  14. Lightly skim-coat both sides of the triangles in oil to promote browning.
  15. Air fry for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and warm throughout flipping at least once.
  16. Serve warm.

 

Author Notes:

This savory snack packs loads of flavor into every bite. Each of the bite-sized triangles has a balance of sweet from the corn and a tiny bit of heat from the chili powder. Although delicious served hot, these Black Bean Triangle Bites can be made ahead of time and served cool at a picnic or tailgating.
