Southwestern Appetizer Triangles
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 can (16oz) refried beans
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 (4oz) can diced jalapeno peppers, drained
- 2 pkg. (12oz) Wonton wrappers
- oil for deep frying
- additional salsa
Preparation time 25mins
Cooking time 40mins
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the beans, cheese, salsa and jalapenos. Cook and stir over low heat until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat; cool for 10 minutes.
Place a teaspoonful of beef mixture in the center of one wonton wrapper. Moisten edges with water. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold wonton in half, forming a triangle; press edges to seal. Repeat.
In an electric skillet or deep fryer, heat oil to 375. Fry wontons, a few at a time, for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with additional salsa.
