I’ve made lots of dumplings.
Cream Cheese White Cheddar Wontons I can’t help it; I love to make these.

There’s Spicy Crab RangoonsSalmon Dumplings with Key Lime Dipping SauceHabanero Cheddar Wontons with Spicy Dipping Sauce, just to name a few. I haven’t blogged many of them, but they’re in my book to do.


But, these. THESE, y’all, are different.
Cheese Wontons With Hot Mandarin Orange Dipping Sauce It’s the sauce that’s so spectacular. My Lord.

The sauce is like pure crack – Hot Mandarin Orange Dipping Sauce. It’s sweet, spicy and has just enough salty-soy and sesame flavor to make it so perfect. 

Then…that Sriracha kicks in.

That’s the good stuff.
