I originally reviewed this recipe and gave it lower rating, but I did some research. I really like this recipe and I love the flavor, filling, etc., plus it's easy to make and calls for stuff you have around the house. BUT - when you steam them, YUCK! The wrappers look gross, and they stick together, rip apart, etc. That was what made this UNuseful to me. Maybe this little piece of information will help: when you steam these, you either need to space them apart so they are not touching, OR you need to oil the wonton wrapper (or egg roll wrappers, if you use bigger ones, like I did) so they won't stick. I am excited to try this again.

I made this for my traditional New Years eve dinner as the appetizer. I used Hot Chili Sauce instead of Chili oil. Where I live you do a lot of substitutions. Did'nt know how to make finalize the Won Tons so I made them into purses with the four corners coming together. Also doubled the sauce recipe to give everyone plenty. All loved them and asked for the recipe.

I thought that the recipe was very good. I had trouble with the wrappers because it they all stuck together. The dipping sauce was a bit too spicy for my family, so for those who don't like things too spicy, I suggest using half the chili oil.

Very tasty! For the filling I didn't have fresh cilantro so I used 1T of dried cilantro instead. Also for the dipping sauce I didn't have chile oil but did have hot chile paste so I used 2t vegetable oil and 1t chile paste. The only problem I had was steaming them. I had a lot of them and used egg roll wrappers instead of wonton -- the wrappers were really thin and stuck fast to the metal of the steamer tray, and to each other. So they tasted good but kind of fell apart when I tried to take them out. I will experiment more with this (different folding method or cooking longer, or cooking uncovered instead of covered) because the recipe was good enough for me to want more!
