Cheese & Sausage Bundles

I haven't been cooking a whole lot lately, because of work. But what I have been making has been delicious. With this recipe, I dabbled with frying food. They turned out very well and it's very simple. I personally think that the salsa is best the day after it is made. The flavors mix together and it tastes more like a salsa you would buy.

1/4 pound Italian sausage
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1 can diced green chilies, drained on paper towels
2 Tablespoons finely chopped green onion
40 won-ton wrappers
1 quart vegetable oil, for frying

16 ounce can petite diced tomatoes w/green chilies
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
2 Tablespoons chopped green onion
3 Tablespoons chopped parsley

Prepare the salsa before frying the bundles. This salsa is supposed to be served warm.
I put a rounded teaspoon of filling into the middle of the won-ton, wet 2 edges, and fold over into a triangle. It's the easiest way I have found.
To fry, use a stock pot, Dutch oven, or electric skillet. With the electric skillet, it will heat the oil, tell you when it's ready, and make sure the temperature remains the same throughout cooking.
To reheat any leftover bundles, either fry, bake, or put in the microwave. With the microwave, they get a little chewy, but if you put salsa over the top, it' not so bad.
