I made this up the other day to use up left over BBQ chicken and wanted to create a Southwestern flavor. We like things spicy but the measurements can be easily adjusted to suit your taste!

My family loved these! I had some won ton wrappers that needed to be used and this was perfect. We had these for dinner so I made them ravioli-style for bigger portion sizes. They had a delicious creamy filling and the veggies inside were a great compliment. I will make these again! Read More

Time consuming but good. Fun to make just the same. I baked them but they probably would have been better fried but I was trying to save calories (and more time.) Read More

These were excellent and fairly simple. The store was out of won ton wrappers so I picked up egg roll wrappers instead. You can cut them down to size or make a larger version...both were still very good. These are a little spicy (I like spice) so you may want to cut down a little if you like things mild. Read More

Yum!! These were delicious and all of my kids even thought so (ages 2 6 9 12). I boiled the chicken to cook it quickly and for the veges I used a pack of frozen corn/peppers/onions. They were so easy just a little time consuming. I froze the extras without baking them to use for another day since this recipe made so much. Read More

Found these goodies en route to looking for something else. I was looking for a recipe fo traditional Oriental Won Tons and ran across this recipe. I just happened have left over BBQ pork in the fridge so ended up making these. I used my leftover BBQ pork instead of the chicken. My one change was I used half the hot pepper. 1 tsp looked like quite a bit plus the BBQ sauce I have is pretty spicy. Read More

We have made these twice and both times they have been great. We added a frozen southwest vegetable mix instead of individual items that already had the seasonings and black beans and it was great. This is a great recipe to let the kids do and they think the won tons are so fun to make! Read More
