This recipe is pretty big so if you ain't throwing a party you
may want to cut down a bit. It makes about 90 wontons.

1/2 C onions, chopped fine
2 T catsup
1/4 C chopped chiles (your choice)
3 t chili powder (more or less)

1/2 t ground cumin
8 doz wonton skins
oil for frying
Taco Sauce or Salsa for dipping

Brown Beef and onions, drain.
Stir in refiried beans, mix thoroughly.
Mix remaining ingredients together, then add it all to the
beef and bean mixture. Mix well.
Fill each skin with about a tablespoon or so of the mixture.
Fold over and seal skins.
Fry about 1 minute per side, drain on paper towel and serve
warm with salsa or other sauce. Actually, I really like a
little dollop of sour cream with the wontons along with the
