Taco Wontons

Wontons and egg rolls are delicious.  That crispy, tender roll filled with meat and cheese and all sorts of delicious flavors.  Plus, it's a food that the kids love too, so I'm not stuck making two meals for two sets of eaters.

The Asian versions are great, but I'm not shy when it comes to mixing flavors and cuisines.

And now, Taco Night can get in on the wonton action!


A little seasoned beef, shredded cheese, sour cream and your favorite salsa - you've got Taco Tuesday made new again!

  • 1/2 lb ground beef, browned and seasoned with Taco seasoning according to packet or preference
  • 1/2 c shredded cheese
  • 1 cup favorite salsa (I used this poblano corn variety)
  • 8-10 egg roll wrappers
  • egg wash (1 egg beaten, with a splash of water)


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.   Grab your ingredients and prepare your assembly line.  Align your wonton wrapper as a "diamond" and scoop 1 Tbsp meat, 1 pinch cheese and a dap of salsa into the center of your wrapper (going corner to corner)


Start the "burrito roll" using water and your finger to seal the seams and edges.  Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet.  Continue until all of your wrappers are filled.  Brush your egg wash on the tops of each roll - this will give them a crunchy texture and super golden color in the oven.

If you wanted to deep fry these babies, you certainly can.  Leave out the egg wash and add 2-3 rolls to the oil at a time to make sure they cook evenly.


Bake at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes until they are evenly gold and gorgeous.  Cool slightly before serving and top with sour cream and more of your tasty salsa.  Perfect for a game-day snack or quick weeknight dinner!
