"Didn't have enough Jalapenos to make full out poppers, but improvised for a creamy and spicy appetizer. You'll want to eat them right away, but they will be molten hot so be careful!!" — Jessina

mini phyllo tart shells
cream cheese, softened
shredded Cheddar cheese
jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
hot pepper sauce
I took the suggestion of using individual tortilla chips. I used Tostitos scoops. They were perfect .
These were just so so to me. Not bad, not great.
I thought 2 jalapenos would be too hot, but it needed both. I also found it needed a little garlic salt as it was a lacking a little something. I usually love phyllo shells, but for this recipe, I think I would bake on individual tortilla chips next time. A wonderful foundation...and the mixture was even better after refrigerating for a few days. The bacon is a great bonus (I used real instead of bacon bits). Thanks for a fun idea!
Pretty, Simple, Tasty! I made as stated and put them in mini muffin tins. I also added shredded imitation crab meat (1 cup) so this made 18 filled tarts for me. The crab meat and the peppers were great together and very attractive and gave it a little more filling. They were gone in an instant. Can't wait to serve them again.
BIG HIT!!!!!!!!!!! I put the mix in a sandwhich baggy and snipped the cornor to pipe the mix in to make it easier and so that I wouldnt break the shells.
We LOVED these! The only phyllo shells I can buy come in packs of 15. I doubled this recipe for 60 tarts and had just enough filling. It can be a bit tedious filling the shells, so next time (and yes, there will be a next time) I'll pipe the filling in. I made these ahead of time w/no issue. We didn't use them all, so I froze the extras in the Phyllo tart trays in a Ziploc for future use. Good stuff! Surprisingly, I actually preferred the tray I made bacon-less to the ones topped w/bacon bits. THANKS, for a great appetizer recipe, Jessina!
Awesome recipe! I ended up using phyllo cough and using a regular side cupcake pan. Therefore, I doubled the recipe. I also added more Jalapeno's. Everyone LOVED this recipe! Will make many more times. Thanks for sharing.
These were so easy and EVERYONE loved them! I even had 3 people ask for the recipe before I left the party! Anything with less than 6 ingredients is on my list of the best recipes to have, and with the rave reviews, you can count on me doing this one over and over again! I made the filling the day before and kept it in the fridge overnight. I took it out to get to a "spreadable room temp" and just before the party popped it in the oven! EASY!!!
