Simply Scrumptious Crab Wontons

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mommy Diva

This is a recipe my friend Kym showed me - and I have been making it ever since!! It goes great with my Sweet and Sour Meatballs - I serve this as an appetizer when I have guests with a little sweet chili sauce - YUMMY!! Vary amounts depending on the number of wontons you want - the filling is great spread on French bread with cheddar cheese and baked open face too!!

These were just delicious! I made these for an Asian themed feast birthday party and everyone devoured them. Sorry no picture, they just disappeared way too fast! Definitely a keeper :) thanks. Made for ZWT 6 Queens of Quisine!
