I was a bit disappointed with the flavor - seemed a bit bland but this was a quick and easy soup to make. I think part of my issue is I would have preferred pork in the wontons as well as a splash of sesame oil to add that unique chinese flavor. Just a note on the wonton skins - make sure you buy square ones - much easier to fill and seal. There are some slightly rectangular ones out there that are more of a challenge. Also I would increase the broth quantity as the wontons do absorb broth as they cook.

This was my first time making wonton soup...It was very good. I made the wontons ahead of time and froze them, then droped into the boiling broth and cooked about 8 mins. They were great. I really liked the mixture in the wontons and liked the addition of the spinach. I omitted the carrots, I think next time, I might use a different brand of broth, mine didn't have a lot of flavor, or drop in a little bullion.

I just made this and I thought I would like it but I did not. I think it was the fact that it had the beef flavor with the chicken I really didnt like it. I think it would be better with chicken.
