    Nana Lee's Note:

    Habanero peppers are fiery, so wear gloves while chopping them. To tame the sauce, substitute a jalapeño or poblano pepper. You can make the won tons ahead of time, freeze them, and bake just before serving. Cooking Light, SEPTEMBER 2002

      This was not a hard recipe to do. I used a heaping teaspoon of the won ton filling. 2 teaspoons seemed too much for my won ton wrappers. Next time I will use less mint. I like mint but it seemed to be the predominate herb in the mixture. I cheated and used a homemade canned sauce. Very tasty. I have frozen some of the won tons for later use. Thanks
