I liked the idea of this recipe more than the actual taste. I found the filling to be a tad bland and would have really liked more flavor in it. I will however make baked wontons again, just not with this filling.

These were OK, the wontons were kind of hard and dry. I used lean ground sirloin and a low fat mexican cheese blend. I did add more cheese than called for and it still seemed like the meat mixture was missing something.

Sooo good! I hadn't tried baked wontons before-this worked so well, although I did brush the cooking spray around to make sure it coated everything. The recipe looks really spicy, but it's just perfect. I used ground venison, so draining wasn't necessary, and regular longhorn colby cheese. I loved this! Thanks so much!
