Guest Blogger: Mandy- Taco Wontons

Today we get to hear from Mandy! :)  I love her blog!  She does such a great job with it and takes some fun and awesome pictures of her recipes!  She also hosts a link party on Tuesdays that you will have to check out!  Be sure and stop by her blog and tell her “hi”!Take it away Mandy…I am so excited to be guest blogging here while Nikki is off enjoying her new baby! I have loved visiting Chef in Training so when Nikki put out the call for guest bloggers to help out while she takes a well deserved break, I signed right up.

I am Mandy from Mandy’s Recipe Box. I am a wife to Lance and mom to 3 little munchkins Hannah (8), Preston (6), and Emma (3). I live in the middle of nowhere, Idaho and love it. I love being home with my kids and watching them grow and learn and be silly. We are always in the kitchen cooking up yummy food and treats.Today I am sharing a great recipe for when you don’t want to use your oven. They make a great appetizer or main dish. I hope you like them!

1 lb. ground beefl package Taco Seasoning
12 oz. refried beans
12 egg roll wrappers or won ton wrappers
shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream

Brown the ground beef and season with taco seasoning. Add beans and cook till warm. Take a wrapper and place a spoonful of meat mixture in the center. Top with some cheese. Brush some water along the edges and fold corners up to meet. Seal. Deep fry until golden brown. Repeat with remaining wrappers. If using won ton wrappers, make as many as you want and freeze the rest of the meat mixture for another time. Serve hot, topped with sour cream and salsa, if you desire


I really hope you like these fun Won Tons. They are so tasty! Thanks to Nikki for letting me post on her blog. So fun and I hope to make more new friends from those of you who read her yummy blog. Come visit me and be sure to say “Hey” while you’re at it.

If you make this recipe, snap a photo and hashtag it #chefintraining and/or #chefintrainingblog. I would love to see how these recipes take shape in your kitchens.
