Cheeseburger Wontons

My kids love these and so does my husband. It can be made with any ground meat and I serve it with sweet and sour sauce.

Original recipe makes 16 servings


1 pound ground beef
1 (8 ounce) package shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
1 (12 ounce) package wonton wrappers
water, or as needed
2 cups vegetable oil, or as needed

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease.
  2. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon ground beef and 1/2 teaspoon Colby-Monterey Jack cheese onto the center of each wonton wrapper. Fold each wrapper into a triangle and seal edges together with water.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). The vegetable oil will be ready when bubbles form around the end of a wooden spoon inserted in the oil.
  4. Fry wontons in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove wontons with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
