Shiso leaves are Japanese basil leaves. I've substituted fresh sliced jalepenos; not the same, but darn good.


  1. Cut shiso leaves in halves. Place a piece of shiso and a cube of cheese in the center of a wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton wrapper in half diagonally, shaping into a triangle. Moisten to seal the edges well. Heat oil to 375 degrees and deep-fry the wonton until brown.
