CAn you bake the won tons ahead of time, and let guests fill them themselves, like traditional tacos?

Wontons are a great idea for an appetizer if you're hosting a dinner party. It's something unique and unexpected, which I like. I'll have to add this to my list to make for my next fun party I throw. Thanks!

These are great and super easy to make! I tried them last night and will admit I was a little nervous. I'm not the best cook but these were just amazing. I also added fresh avocado chunks to it!
