Great wontons! I cooked them in my deep fryer and they were delicious. I did cheat a little by buying fresh pineapple pico de gallo from the grocery store. These wontons make a great party appetizer.

I don't let the 5% fat fool you, these are not health food. They are very greasy. The flavor is good and I will be making the pineapple salsa again, next time served with tortilla chips instead of the wontons.
PaulaG... LOVE LOVE these! Made them for a post Xmas not quite New Years party we hosted over the holiday. These were gobbled up! I only got one, but I am not bitter! I like the other reviewers idea about the super bowl. Thanks for a keeper. Happy New Year!
