Spicy Squash Pot Sticker Filling


For 1 Batch(es)


  • 1 package(s) pot sticker wrappers
  • 1 pound(s) cubed butternut squash
  • 1/2 cup(s) finely diced sweet onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper(s), diced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) finely minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce

Spicy Squash Pot Sticker Filling Directions

  1. Place the squash cubes in a large pan of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cubes are just softened (the cubes should still have texture)—about 5 minutes.
  3. Drain the squash and let cool slightly. Add the rest of the ingredients to the squash cubes and stir to combine—breaking up the squash to form a rough filling.
  4. Fill the pot stickers and cook.
  5. To cook the pot stickers, heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pot stickers in a single layer (being careful not to overcrowd the pan) and cook until the bottoms are golden and crisp—about 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Working quickly, add about ¼ cup of water to the pan and immediately cover. Let the dumplings steam for 5 to 7 minutes, or until they are wrinkled and the dough is cooked through. Remove the lid and allow all the water to evaporate.
  7. Cook another minute, or until the bottoms are crispy and the dumplings are cooked through—shaking the pan to release the dumplings. Serve with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce or other dipping sauces, if desired.
