Fried Won Ton Tacos

Mindy Sena Recipe

By Mindy Sena lindybon

We were having tacos for dinner, had won tons in the fridge, thought why not? It was a big hit! Nice way to change up taco night! Can be served as a meal with refried beans, mexican rice. Or great as an appetizer! I've also added a pic of a healthier, lighter version of this recipe...
