Phenomenal! I made these today for the Superbowl and they were gone as soon as they hit the plate. My new favorite appetizer!
I lived in Louisville for two years while in grad school... since then I've lived in Texas and Indiana... I drive to Louisville and The Bristol is always a place we stop at to eat... of course I always order the Green Chili Wontons and Derby Pie from there... I'm so excited to try this receipe! I'm almost 27 weeks pregnant and have been craving some Green Chili Wontons!! Can't wait to also come back to Louisville to visit, because there are so many other places I have cravings! Wish I could move back to Louisville!!!!
I can't speak for the dip as I didn't make that, but the wontons are spot on! I just had these at the Bristol and was *so* pleased to find the recipe here! I made about double the 18 wontons the recipe says it makes, but probably if you used bigger wrappers you would only get about 20. The recipe calls for 2 TBSP of the mixture per wonton, and my wrappers could only fit 1 TBSP. The frying time was perfect and I really liked them with a salsa/ sour cream mix to dip. I eventually gave up folding them in little "envelopes" and just wrapped them like little tortellini. As a matter of fact, I may just make some up and use them in place of the ravioli in this recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/108124
