So I was searching for something to do tonight that wasn’t craft oriented after my day yesterday and decided to try my hand at some baked cream cheese, jalapeno wonton wrapper appetizers.
I froze some jalapenos from my garden last year and found wonton wrappers the other day at the grocery store. They also had cream cheese on sale for $.99 a box, so I picked up five! Don’t usually get the low fat, but their shelves were almost bare.
I chose five peppers, three green and two that had been on the vine too long and were red. Hope they don’t bite me later!
After chopping the jalapenos up, I added them to a brick of cream cheese and stirred it all together.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Get out one wonton wrapper and place a spoonful of the cream cheese mixture on it. Have a small bowl of water near by and dip your finger in the water, then get the edges of the wonton wrapper wet.
Fold the wrapper over into a triangle and press the edges shut.
I then sprayed the tops with a light coating of non-stick cooking spray. Put them in the oven at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another five.
You can see I didn’t get my edges sealed quite good enough for all of the filling I put in them. They aren’t pretty but they sure are HOT!!! I’ll probably end up with an empty beer bottle to try and cut in half after eating a few of these!
