2             tablespoon                 diced white onion


1             tablespoon                 ground cumin

1             tablespoon                 oregano

1/2          tablespoon                 paprika

1/2          tablespoon                 salt

1             cup                            salsa


1             cup                            lettuce (sliced)

1                                              avocado (sliced)


Pico de Gallo

1/2          cup                           tomato (diced)


1/4          cup                           diced white onion

1/4          cup                           chopped cilantro

1/2          cup                           corn

1                                              jalapeno (diced and seeded)

2             tablespoon                 lime juice


1/2          tablespoon                 salt



Heat oil in stock pot to 350 degrees. Place eggroll wrapper in oil, using the back of the ladle, suppress the middle to wrapper to create a bowl shape as the wonton is frying. Once it turns golden brown drain on a paper towel until ready to use. *Healthy alternative. Invert a heat safe bowl, shape a eggroll wrapper on top and bake at 350 until shell is golden brown.

Heat a saute pan with half tablespoon of oil, then add half tablespoon of garlic and two tablespoons of chopped white onions. Saute until aromatic, 2-3 minutes. Add the ground beef, cumin, oregano, paprika and salt until beef is cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Then mix in your choice of salsa at the end.

In a separate bowl, combine all the ingredients of the pico de gallo.

To assemble, place a wonton bowl on the plate, evenly divide up the lettuce, beef, pico de gallo and sliced avocado among the four bowls.
