  • 2 tablespoons oil, plus more to oil the pan
  • 1 sweet potato, baked
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed, drained and mashed
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  2. In a large bowl, scoop out the flesh of the sweet potato.
  3. Add the mashed beans, curry powder, cilantro, and salt and mix to combine.
  4. Line baking sheets with wonton wrappers. Place 1 teaspoon filling in the center of each wonton. Have a small cup of water nearby to wet your fingers.
  5. Fold skin over, forming a triangle and wet the edges with your fingers to seal shut.
  6. Brush the tops with oil.
  7. Bake 10-15 minutes, until edges of wontons are browned.
  8. Set aside on a plate and allow to cool slightly.

Flavor Tip:

For a Tex-Mex flavor, replace the curry powder with chili powder and add 2 tablespoons salsa to the mixture.
