Recipe: Spicy Shrimp Wonton Soup

This soup was a complete hit. The number of wontons the recipe makes is almost unimaginable but I simply used what I needed to and then froze the rest (uncooked) to be pulled out and fried, baked, or put in future soup. This would be a great starter for a dinner party because it makes so much and you can brew up a big pot of spicy broth to go with it easily.
