This is a recipe my friend Kym showed me - and I have been making it ever since!! It's great with my Sweet and Sour Meatballs, teriyaki/bento, fried rice you name it. I serve this as an appetizer when I have guests with a little sweet chili sauce - YUMMY!! Vary amounts depending on the number of wontons you want - the filling is great spread on French bread with cheddar cheese and baked open face too!!

**You an alternate finely chopped green onions with the walla wallas. :)
