Jalapeno Poppers with Goat Cheese

Wonton wrappers are one of my favorite ingredients since they are so versatile. This recipe originally called for cream cheese, but I think goat cheese is the better ingredient to use, it really accents the cheesiness of the jalapeno poppers.

Other wanton wrapper recipes: Alfredo & Vegetable Lasagna "Cupcakes", Potstickers with Radish Salad and Healthy Mozzarella Sticks.

Adapted from Key Ingredient.

-15 refrigerated square wonton wrappers
-1 5-ounce package goat cheese
-1 jalapenos, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
-1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-Vegetable oil for frying
-Coarse salt

Mix together the goat cheese, jalapeno and cheddar cheese in a small bowl.

Place on teaspoon of filling into the center of each wonton wrapper.

Fold in half, sealing the inside edges with water (this will make the wrapper stick to itself).
Make sure there are no air bubbles.

Fry in hot oil until golden brown.

These were delicious. I think the goat cheese was the perfect compliment to the jalapeno. There was just the right amount of heat, I like it spicy, but I thought it was a good amount of heat, nothing overwhelming. These would be a good appetizer for a party.
