Stella May I what just warms you up every time you eat it? Red Oil Wontons

Of course you may. This is a little different than the traditional wonton soup in that it's packed with way more flavor! It's not as oily or spicy as you would think (well that's what I thought the first time). Today I want to share how to prepare Red Oil Wontons. Come back next week for how I make the just the wontons!
 What you'll need: Spicy Chili Crispy Oil (This brand is Lao Gan Ma), Soy Sauce, Chinkiang Vinegar (it''ll bring a sweetness to the dish and cut down that oiliness), sesame oil, and plain ol' sugar.
Mix together: 4 tablespoons of the chili oil, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 3 tablespoons of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Let it sit and marry while you prepare the wontons.
 How cute are these little wontons!
 I like to fold/pinch them in a little spoon shape to better scoop the sauce. See all those little nooks and pockets? Perfect for sauce!
All lined up and ready to be cooked.
 Gently boil until they float and then cook on a simmer for another 3 minutes.
Almost there.. Now just strain the wontons out and spoon on the sauce.
 Finally top it off with some green onions or scallions and you are ready to eat.
Can you just imagine how warm you will be? I end up wanting more sauce to really dunk the wontons in. I find Red Oil Wontons (also called Sichuan-style Wontons) more of a snack or a appetizer to a main meal. Enjoy and show me pictures if you try out the recipe!
