How to make these spicy nachos

Step 1. To a bowl, add you ground sausage, egg, green onions, salt and cilantro. Mix with hands until combined.

Step 2. Place about a tablespoon of sausage mixture on each wrapper and smash it flat, spreading the mixture across the whole wrapper. Cut diagonally.

Step 3. To a pan add a thin layer of oil and heat until medium. Lay each wonton, meat side down, on the pan and cook until crisp. Flip over and cook for another minute or two.

Step 4. Once all nachos are done, lay them on a plate and top with spicy mayo, unagi sauce, sesame seeds, green onions and cilantro. Enjoy!

FAQs about wontons

What is the difference between a wonton and a dumpling?

When comparing Chinese dumplings vs wontons, some key differences are: Wrappers: Wonton wrappers are thinner, are usually square, and may contain egg. Dumpling wrappers are thicker, are usually round, and don’t require egg. Filling: Dumplings can be filled or unfilled.

Can I use dumpling wrappers for wontons?

Wonton wrappers, when cooked have a thinner and silkier texture. Dumpling wrappers are thicker and have a bit more of a chew to them. I like to use dumpling wrappers solely for pan-frying and steaming and wonton wrappers for wonton dumplings.
