Wonton Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

Make sure to repin this recipe

I just came back from a trip and I have been trying to find really easy recipes to make for my family

I wanted to make jalapeno poppers – they are simple to make and super yummy — but I thought it would be awesome to make the mixture the night before I planned to make them and see how it would turn out

So I decided to make a mixture – basically cream cheese mixed with jalapeno – seeded and diced ( all the heat is in the seeds and pith ) but make sure to wear gloves — I did not the first time and my fingers BURNED for a good day from the seeds and pith — all you have to do is touch them and your hands will be on fire

So I totally forgot the wonton wrappers in this picture – I also added a bit of salt and pepper –

The egg is not needed – I just use it as a wash to give the wonton wrappers a little bit more brownness when they fry

If you want to bake these babies feel free to do so – I am not too sure of the time or temperature – but the packaging of the wonton wrappers should help with that
