Apr 19, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I just made this last weekend and it was a hit! Not too hard to make and it looks beautiful. I modified the recipe a bit, adding spicy chicken sausage and ground beef instead of pork sausage.

I added a bunch of salt, sugar, extra chopped red onion and cilantro. That improved it immensely. Filling the wontons and frying them was time consuming, but...
