Place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center of each wrapper; fold wonton over to form a triangle. Seal edges with fingers or crimp with fork. Brush tops with egg wash.

Or place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 400° F. for 20 minutes or until browned on each side, turning each wonton over after 10 minutes. Serve with guacamole, sour cream and/or salsa.
