Servings: 12 people
- 12 wonton wrappers
- 8 oz cream cheese
- ¼ tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
- 2 -3 jalapeños
- 1/3 cup cooked and crumbled bacon or real bacon bits plus additional to garnish
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded (plus additional to garnish)
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Spray a regular sized muffin tin with cooking spray.
Put one wonton wrapper in each muffin cup.
Bake wrappers about 5 minutes until they are starting to brown.
While the wrappers are in the oven start the filling.
In a medium glass mixing bowl, microwave the cream cheese for 30 seconds.
Add the black pepper. Stir together with a fork.
For a less spicy recipe remove and discard the seeds and white pith from the jalapenos (leave it in for more spice). Dice peppers small – almost minced.
Add jalapenos, green onions, bacon and cheddar cheese to the cream cheese mixture – stir to combine.
When the wontons have browned, use a cookie scoop to add the filling to the wonton cups. Garnish with reserved bacon and cheese.
Return filled wontons to the oven for 7-9 more minutes until hot through and cheese is melted.
