1/2 Photos of Fiesta Wontons
mary winecoff's Note:
This recipe is from Katie Lee Joel's new cookbook called The Comfort Table. The wontons has a mexican-inspired meat wrapped in a wonton, deep-fried and served with a side of salsa. Kinda like little fried tacos. Instead of frying, you can bake these...instructions included!

- 1In a medium bowl, combine the beef, onion, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, bread crumbs, taco seasoning and cilantro.

Brush the wonton's edges with egg white and fold to seal in a triangle. Place the wontons on the baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
