Update: I used only 4 oz of crm cheese with 5 (broiled/deseeded) jalapeno's plus some grated Asiago and provolone cheese. Pressed into 1/2 moon shapes (cut off excess wonton edge). Then I dipped each one in beaten egg w/milk and then coated with Panko b4 freezing. OMG, great! Nice n hot too. I got 20 using only 1/2 the cream cheese. Original Post: The idea of this intrigued me. I don't like the work or mess stuffing/breading traditional poppers so, gave this a try. I LOVE THESE! I did use 5 fresh (seriously large) jalapenos that I broiled, peeled and deseeded. Chopped and mixed w/the 8 oz crm cheese. I did add salt, cayenne pepper & touch of lemon juice. Was freaking HOT when I tasted the mix but once put together, they were awesome. I used a zip bag for filling and cut off a small corner to pipe onto wontons (quicker & less mess). I froze poppers (on a sheet pan lined w/clear wrap) before putting them in a large ziplock bag to have at my convenience. Let the crm cheese mix chill before filling wontons. If you like more heat, add more jalapenos or something else hot. I filled 50 wontons (12 oz pack) & had extra filling for probably another 25. Fairly easy & took me about 30 mins to fill/wrap 50. A side note: This posted recipe does not call for baking, they are meant to be fried in properly pre-heated oil.
