Greensboro, NC -- Not only are they journalists, but they're cooks and they're sharing their favorite recipes. That's right, the men at WFMY News 2 know how to cook and showed everyone at home watching The Good Morning Show.

WFMY News 2's Mark Geary shares his recipe for Cheese Wontons:

What you need: 

  • Wonton Wrappers (buy at the grocery store)
  • Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Water

How to make it:
Cut up the cheese into small pieces. Put as much cheese as you'd like in the center of a wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in water and run it along the edges of the wonton wrapper. Fold all the corners into the center. The water will act like a glue. Drop the wontons into 350 degree oil. Fry until they turn brown. Then eat and enjoy!

WFMY News 2's Tony Smith Share's his recipe for guacamole dip: 

What you need:

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped white onion
  • 1 firmly packed tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeño, or more to taste
  • 2 large tomatoes, quartered, pulp and seeds removed, rolled up in double layer of paper towels, gently squeezed, paper removed, and coarsely diced
  • 1 fresh limes, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or as needed
  • 3 medium ripe but firm Hass avocados (about 8 ounces each)
  • 2 firmly packed tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped white onion
  • Salt if necessary
  • Tortilla chips and/or fresh corn tortillas

How to make it:

In a medium bowl, mash together the avocados, lime juice, and salt. Mix in onion, cilantro, tomatoes, and jalapeños. Refrigerate 1 hour for best flavor, or serve immediately.

How to make the chile paste: Grind the onion, cilantro, jalapeños, and salt together in a food processor until all the ingredients are very finely ground.

Preparing the avocados: 

Cut each avocado in half, working the knife blade around the pit. Twist the halves to separate them and flick out the pit with the tip of the knife. Fold a kitchen towel in quarters and hold it in the palm of your "non-knife" hand. Rest an avocado half cut side up in your palm and make 3 or 4 evenly spaced lengthwise cuts through the avocado flesh down to the skin, without cutting through it. Make 4 crosswise cuts in the same way. Scoop the diced avocado flesh into the bowl. Repeat with the remaining avocado halves. Use a fork to mash all avocados into a bowl.

Mix the chile paste & avocado until desired texture.
