  3. Cook sausage in a large deep skillet, breaking it up with the spatula, until almost cooked through. Add the onion, ginger, and jalapeno to the pan and continue cooking until onions are soft. Add the chopped peppers and garlic to the pan and sauté for 5 more minutes. Add apricot preserves and hoisin to the pan and stir to combine, cooking for another 2 minutes until bubbly. Stir in the shredded cheese and remove from heat.
  4. Fill the wonton shells with the sausage and pepper mixture. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, scallions, and cilantro. Serve hot.
  5. Makes 40-50 wontons
