      Wow! I fried the wontons just because I was Leary of baking them. Now that I know these are "spot on" per DH I will try baking next time. Delicious and sure to save on our weekly trip to Carinos just for my fix. Just think! We can explore new restaurants in town. Woohoo!

      While looking for a great Alfredo sauce recipe, I came across this one, and it brought back a lot of memories. Me and my wife loved these from Johnny carino's. Probably one of our favs. This recipe is pretty close to the way that they are actually made but not all the way. Baking the wontons may be healthier, but frying them will achieve the same taste that u are looking for. Unless u go there and order the nachos and add onions... Then 86 them, they do not belong. Dice toms, blk olives, sliced pepper rings, and slice jalape

      These were really good. I must say though not quite anything like JC's. I'm not sure what I did wrong with the chips but I had to make them twice because the first batch burned.
