If you’re in need of a quick but delicious appetizer to bring to your Super Bowl party, game day, or your next get together, this recipe is for you! Appetizers are my favorite things to make for game day or to take to any party! These jalepeño popper wontons are always a hit with everyone! The crunch of the wonton wraps and the creamy cheese make these irresistible! I love how quick and easy this recipe is too! With only 7 ingredients, you have to try these out for your next get together!
To make these jalapeño popper wontons, I first preheated my oven to 375 degrees and then gathered all of the supplies that I needed. I cooked 8 pieces of bacon in a skillet on medium heat until the bacon was nice and crispy. I then laid the bacon out on a paper towel lined plate to drain any excess bacon grease. Next, in a medium sized bowl, I mixed 1 block of softened cream cheese, ½ cup of chopped jalepeños, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and 1 tablespoon of ranch seasoning. Mix this together well. Then, crumble the bacon and add it into the bowl. Mix well until everything is blended evenly.
Now you’re ready to make the wontons! In a muffin pan, place 1 wonton wrap into each cup and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the wontons from the oven and scoop the cream cheese mixture into each wonton. A cookie scoop works great for this! Then, top each wonton with a slice of jalapeño and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Take your jalapeño popper wontons out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before you bite into one! I was able to get about 24 wontons out of this recipe, but you can fill them a little less to make even more to go around!
My family makes appetizers for many different holidays and pretty much anytime we have anyone over to the house! Appetizers are fun and are usually very easy to make a lot of. I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t like jalepeño poppers and adding the wonton to the mix makes them even more delicious! I hope you love this recipe!
