"This is a mixture of cheese, chicken, and a bit of spice in a phyllo pastry. They are a great finger food, and give a nice flavorful taste."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

red onion, chopped
jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
salt and ground black pepper to taste
cooked, diced chicken breast meat
shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend
1/2 (8 ounce) package
hot pepper sauce
phyllo dough, thawed
We didn't have any cream cheese on hand and only cheddar was available. But they look and smell delicious as well as being tasty. I was sure to check the filling taste before filling them to make sure the seasonings and cheese amount was enough for our tastes. What a great way to use up phyllo.
I altered it slightly, because I'm not a fan of peppers, but it was still pretty darn good. Definitely keep a small bowl of water nearby as you're filling the pockets, to seal the edges. (Sent my boyfriend to the store for egg roll and wonton wrappers for Chinese food night, and he brought back four boxes of phyllo sheets, so I've been trying to find ways to use them.)
when life gives you lemons and you make lemon aid is exactly how I felt about this recipe. I have never used phyllo sheets before so to me the instructions were not clear at all. How much mixture do we put in the squares and how do you seal the edges they don't just stick together.. and then there was no picture to show me what the final product should look like. I did not add the jalapeno I used green chilies instead. the filling was good.
