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
|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.
