Hot and Crispy Cream Cheese Wonton Poppers — Two Ways


jalapeno poppers6

So this recipe always reminds me of my nephew.  He was the one who made them for me the first time, and they are yummy!  I never got a recipe, so it was a little trial and error.  I also made an alternate popper for those of you that don’t like jalapenos or just want to try something different!

Recipe #1:

Wonton wrappers

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 Tbsp. jalapenos, seeded and finely chopped

Mix softened cream cheese with jalapenos.  Lay out wonton wrappers and place a small amount (about 1 tsp.)  in the middle of each wrapper.  Wet edges of wontons with some water and fold in half to make a triangle shape.  You may want to use a little water on top to fasten more securely.

Heat 1/2 inch oil in frying pan on medium high.  Fry wrappers in oil until golden brown.  Watch them, they cook quickly!!

Recipe #2:

Wonton wrappers

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 Tbsp. green chilies

1 Tbsp. salsa

1/4 tsp. chili powder

dash cayenne pepper

Mix softened cream cheese with above ingredients and spices.  Complete same process with wonton wrappers and fry in oil.

If you asked which I liked, I would say both!!  This is just a personal preference.  Even my little ones ate the jalapeno ones, so they definitely aren’t too spicy.  If you LOVE heat, add more jalapenos.

For those of you that don’t like to fry, I have an alternate with crescent rolls I found on Pinterest.  I will be posting them shortly!  They have bacon.  My husband always loves bacon!

Perfect for the big game!  Enjoy!  And a shout out to my nephew – thanks, Mike!  You always have been a great cook.  Have a very happy Birthday!!

Happy popping!
