Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

This is such a FUN recipe to make — it tastes like something that would be difficult to make but it really is simple — and it is done in under 20 minutes

I made my wonton vegetarian but you can add some shredded cooked chicken

You can totally change the type of veggies I added – when I make this dish again I am going to add jalapenos to give it an extra kick! I think recipe would go perfectly with that avocado dipping sauce that I created

Ranch Avocado Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and mashed
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel

Just mix all the ingredients together and enjoy 🙂

I loved the fact I was able to use so many ingredients that I already had in my cupboard ( corn, black beans, pepper, chili powder, salt and cumin)

The one item not in the picture for some reason ( DAD – who set up the picture) is my red bell pepper — I think bell peppers might be one of my favorite ingredients ever!!! It is something I ate a ton of as a kid

Here is my dad holding up the mix of all the veggies — ready to be place in the wontons

I decided to fry the wontons but I will leave how to bake this dish in the recipe box 🙂

I garnished the dish with a little cilantro – I personally would pack in A TON more cilantro but my mom hates cilantro so I have to use it sparingly
