Holiday Appetizers - Won Tons

Time to start thinking about some appetizers for the holidays.  One of my family's all time favorite is Won Tons.  

I thought it was time to share my recipe again.   Super easy and such a treat.  You can make these way ahead of time, just freeze and cook what you need.

1 lb. ground round generously seasoned with garlic salt.

 1 can diced green chilies

 Jack or/and mozzarella cheese

Won Ton Wraps

 Brown meat well then add the can of green chilies, cook together for 1 to 2 minutes.

 Add 2 large handfuls of the shredded cheese.

 Turn heat off and stir to melt and combine with the meat mixture.

 Beat one egg in a bowl and set aside to use when wrapping the won tons.

 Place a small spoonful in the center of the won ton skin -

 Roll up from one corn about 3/4 of the way - -

 Dip fingers in egg wash and rub on the two ends to moisten, then stick them together in sort of a bow fashion.

Place them on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer.

 When they are frozen, package them up in freezer bags in a single layer - about 25 to the bag - and return to freezer.  This recipe makes about 75.

Place frozen in hot oil and fry until golden brown.  These are small, so don't over cook.  Serve with salsa or seasoned ketchup as a dip.

I love having something I can pull out of the freezer on a minutes notice and these are always a crowd pleaser.
