How to Make Redzone Bites

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350F.

    In a large saute saute pan, place your ground beef and brown, breaking up into small pieces. Once ground beef is almost brown, add your onions and potatoes. Saute till meat has browned and onion has softened and potato is starting to crisp.

    Add your spices and thoroughly stir in.
  • 2Let mixture saute for about 1 minute or so longer. Turn off heat. Add the fresh pepper, fresh herbs and cheese. Thoroughly incorporate and set aside.
  • 3As mixture is cooling, on your work station, lay out 1 wonton wrapper. Using a small basting brush, wet the outer edges of your wonton wrapper, add about 2 tsps or so meat mixture in the middle of the wrapper. Fold wrapper over and seal. Using your fingers to manipulate spreading the mixture throughout the wrapper so it's not just in the middle. Place on baking sheet. Continue with rest of wonton wrappers and meat mixture.
  • 4Melt butter for the basting sauce. Add your ranch dressing and garlic powder. When baking pan is full, baste the top of your wonton bites with the basting sauce.
    Bake for 18-20 mintues till nice and crisp.

    While wontons are baking, make your dipping sauce.
    In a bowl add your sourcream, your ranch dressing and your garlic powder. Stir till thoroughly incorporated.

    Take your wontons out of the oven, and let cool enough to handle. Place on a platter alongside your dipping sauce.
