Directions

For the filling: In a saute pan, cook the aromatics (garlic, onion, ginger) in the oil over medium heat until translucent. Add the ground pork and cook until done. Deglaze the pan with the soy sauce and set aside to cool. 

Meanwhile, for the salsa: Pulse the pickled jalapeno, shallots, tomatoes, garlic, chipotle chile, bell pepper, cilantro, lemon juice, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste in a food processor until chunky. 

For the dumplings: Add a small amount of the pork filling to each of the wonton wrappers, and fold to desired shape. Use a little egg wash to seal the edges. Heat a few inches of oil in a Dutch oven, or other heavy pot, and heat to 350 degrees F over medium-high heat. Fry the dumplings until very blistered. Preheat the broiler.

Top the dumplings with the cheeses, and melt in the broiler. Finish with salsa and a few spoonfuls of sour cream.
