Crab rangoons are great but when you get them from a takeout place, there is usually a small amount of filling and it is 90 percent cream cheese. I wanted to re-make these but really fill them up! I used Idaho® potatoes to upgrade these from a pre-meal bite to more of a hearty snack or part of a tailgating spread. I mixed cream cheese in because what's a rangoon without cream cheese? I also mixed in pickled jalapenos to add a tangy kick, and some scallions, soy sauce, and sour cream.
I like to use imitation crab for this because it is more available, more affordable, and more traditional to a rangoon than actual crab, but feel free to upgrade to real crab if you want!
Yield: 20 rangoons
