We seem to have a lot of them in this household.
Don’t tell anyone, but I do it . . . On Purpose!
I make extra, so that another nights meal can be ultra easy.
Taco meat makes the most delicious Won-tons. My family loves them!
See . . .
The 1st night, we had Tacos.
If you want to see how I make my Taco meat – Click here.
With the leftover meat . . . I make these delicious crispy fried Won-tons and salsa for a dipping sauce.
Oh yeah . . . I Bottled Salsa yesterday. I will share the recipe very soon.
I served the won-tons with a nice Green Salad and Green Beans from the garden.
It’s so darn Easy . . . when you have leftover meat for the filling.
Just in case you haven’t ever used won-ton or egg roll wrappers, I’ll show you how.
You find them over by the produce in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.
I usually buy the egg roll wraps . . . as they are larger in size.
1. Take one of the wraps, and lay it on your work surface.
2. Place your filling (about 2 tablespoons) on the wrapper.
*Taco meat and grated cheese or Brown Sugared ham & cheese.
The options are endless . . . Sausage, pepperoni, veggies, etc.
3. Moisten the outside edges with a bit of water.
4. Fold end corner up and over the filling, roll snugly half way to cover filling.
5. Fold over both sides, snugly against filling.
*It should look like an envelope at this point.
6. Roll over flap to seal. Lay flap side down, until ready to fry.
*You can prepare these ahead of time, and keep them in the fridge until you are ready to fry them.
7. Deep fry at 350 degrees, a few at a time, turning occasionally, until golden. 2 to 3 minutes.
8. Drain on Paper towels. Serve warm with salsa, Mustard, Catsup, etc.
I also made Brown Sugar Ham & Cheese Wontons as well . . . My favorite!
So simple and so delicious!
I use my deep “Fry Daddy” to fry the won-tons.
If you want to make the Brown Sugar Ham . . . It’s so simple.
Cut your ham in small pieces. Melt a combination of margarine & butter in a hot skillet. Place the ham in the butter, and let it sizzle and start to brown. Add about 1 tablespoon of Brown Sugar, a couple dashes of onion powder, and toss the ham around until the caramel sauce thickens and the ham is golden. YUM! I make this ham for Hawaiian pizza, Ham Fried Rice, etc.
There you have it . . . another easy delicious meal!

Looks great I have left over taco meat in the fridge right now, I will have to try those tonight.
Have you found anything yummy to dip the ham and cheese ones in?
This sounds really good! I’m going to try them this weekend. My mom and son who both live with me would love these. Myself I try not to eat too much fried food, but I think I could eat one or two or three. . .
New visitor here. My stomach is growling! Thanks for practical ideas that look like they will taste great!
would it be possible to lightly fry these on the stove and then bake them?
You could fry them lightly on the stove top in a bit of oil, then bake them, but the wontons fry up very quickly.
