“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!”

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the beef, onion, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, bread crumbs, taco seasoning and cilantro.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the wonton squares on a dry work surface. Place 1 mounded teaspoon of the meat mixture in the middle of each wonton. 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.
  3. In a deep heavy pot, heat the canola oil to 375 degrees. Fry the wontons until golden brown, about 1 minute per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  4. You could also preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Brush the wontons with the lightly beaten egg white and bake for 7 to 8 minutes.
  5. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with salsa.
