  • 2 tablespoons oil, plus more to oil the pan
  • 1 (15-ounce) can beans (black or pinto), rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar or Jack cheese
  • ¼ cup salsa
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 package wonton wrappers


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and oil two baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, mash beans with the back of a fork or a potato masher. Add cheese, salsa, and cilantro and mix to combine.
  3. Line baking sheet with wonton wrappers. Place 1 teaspoon filling in the center of each wonton. Have a small cup of water nearby to wet your fingers. Fold skin over, forming a triangle and wet the edges with your fingers to seal shut.
  4. Brush the tops with oil. Bake 10-15 minutes, until edges of wontons are browned. Set aside on a plate and allow to cool slightly.
