“Similar to several other "Chinese'Mexican" fusion won ton recipes here, but sans meat. I invented these using "on hand" ingredients when I needed a quick appetizer to take to a party...they were a big hit! This makes a lot, but they freeze beautifully (before cooking). Don't omit the ripe avocado---it really binds the filling together and adds a rich nutty flavor that balances the hot spices.”
