       Yield: 8 Servings
   1 1/2 lb Sweet potatoes
       6 tb Minced fresh ginger
       1 c  Chopped cilantro
       6    Serrano chiles, seeded,
     1/2 ts Salt
      32    Round won- ton wrappers
       1 c  Canola oil
   Bake potatoes in a 375 degrees oven for 1 hour, or until very soft.
   Cut in half and scrape flesh into a bowl. (You should have about 2
   cups.) Add ginger, cilantro, chiles and salt; mix well. Place 1
   tablespoon filling in a won-ton wrapper. Brush a little water around
   rim of wrapper, fold in half (forming a half- moon); press edges of
   won ton together to seal. Set aside on waxed paper and cover with a
   damp towel. Repeat until all the won tons are filled.
   Pour oil into a wok; place over medium-high heat until oil sizzles
   when a drop of water hits it. Reduce heat to medium and, using tongs,
   slip a few won tons at a time into the oil. Fry for 1 minute, or
   until won tons are golden and slightly puffed. Turn and fry 30 or 40
   seconds. Remove to paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining won
   tons. Serve hot.
   Serves 8 as an appetizer.
