For you T ! :-) Spinach Wontons

This is a family favorite, I will never grow tired of these!! My husband actually taught me how to make them and if you knew him your jaw would drop! lol 
But seriously these are quick and easy and SOOOO sooo tasty!
Spinach Wontons

10 oz frozen chopped spinach thawed and drained
approx 2-4 oz cream cheese ( enough to make the spinach slightly creamy but not get lost)
1 pkg wonton skins round or square
togarashi pepper mix (can substitute cyenne pepper and black pepper mix)
soy sauce
water in small cup to seal wontons
oil for frying

Dipping sauce:
soy sauce
Mirin or brown sugar
togarashi (red pepper seasoning: can use  a mixture of black pepper and cayenne)
sprinkle of sesame seeds

In a microwave safe dish, mix together spinach and enough cream cheese to make it slightly creamy. Season with Togarashi or a sprinking of cayenne and black pepper mix, and a small splash of soy sauce. Heat in microwave until slightly warm. Add more cream cheese until you get the ratio you prefer.
Spoon a teaspoon size dollop of mixture unto the center of the wonton and seal edges by wetting the border of skins with water slightly to seal mixture in.

In a saute pan heat approx 1/2 inch of oil over medium heat. Fry wontons until lightly golden. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle lightly with salt.

In a small dish mix together dipping sauce ingredients to amount desired. Microwave a few seconds until slightly warm. Serve and enjoy!!
