  3. To assemble: Place 1 teaspoon of filling close to one corner of wonton wrapper. Fold corner over filling to cover. Fold over left and right corners. Brush sides and top of triangle with water. Roll, sealing corner. Place on a baking sheet and cover while rest of wontons are filled.

Remove and drain wontons on paper towels. Keep warm in a 200 degree oven until all are done. Serve warm with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
