Food Friday - Jalapeno Poppers

Oh. My. Goodness.

These are so good.

Having company and need a quick, easy, DELICIOUS appetizer? Crank out these bad boys and bask in the compliments. Seriously, these are amazing.

You will need:

·         1-2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened (1 will make about 30 and they will be hot... 2 will make about 60 and they'll be mild)
·         1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers, rinsed
·         30-60 (3.5 inch square) wonton wrappers (found in your produce department)
·         1/2 cup sweet chili sauce (found by ketchup)
·         oil for deep frying (we used about 2 cups of canola oil for 60 of them)

In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and jalapeno peppers. Arrange wonton wrappers a few at a time on a clean dry surface. Set a cup or small bowl of water nearby. Place about a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of each wrapper. Moisten your fingertip in the bowl of water and trace the edges of the wonton wrappers. Fold like a burrito or into triangles (or follow directions on the package for desired shapes). This part can be done ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). When hot, fry the wontons a few at a time until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with all of the wontons, then serve with the sweet chili sauce for dipping.

We made WAAAAYYYY too many and instead of freezing them pre-frying, we froze them post frying and baked them for about 10 minutes at 350* (until hot). Still crunchy AND easy.

  1. Yum....I have been experimenting with egg roll & wonton wraps. Can you bake these instead of frying, i'm against all things fried :)

  2. They are also a yummy alternative way to make homemade pizza rolls - think totinos.... mmmm.... and you can fill them up full of good healthy food!

  3. Oh my husband loves jalepenos. I better keep this one in the bank for sometime down the road. Thanks!


Thanks for your sweet words!!
