Baked Jalapeno Popper Bites

We're back to the winter weather questionably lit photos. I've never had good luck taking food photos once the sun sets, so pardon the slightly dark images. This recipe makes 45 baked jalapeno popper bites, we served this at a recent party and they were incredibly popular.

Recipe slightly adapted from Peas and Crayons.

-45 frozen phyllo shells [3 packages]
-6 ounces plain greek yogurt
-4 oz neufchatel cheese, softened
-1 cup grated pepper jack cheese
-1 cup sharp cheddar
-⅓ cup chopped pickled jalapeƱos
-¼ tsp garlic powder

Lay out your frozen phyllo shells on a large baking sheet. Then combine the Greek yogurt and softened neufchatel cheese in a medium bowl. Next add in the grated pepper jack, sharp cheddar, pickled jalapenos, and garlic powder. Fill each phyllo shell with the cheese mixture, I used a teaspoon measuring spoon to accomplish this, each cup will fit a little over a teaspoon of filling.

Bake the phyllo shells at 350 for 13 minutes and then serve. 

These little phyllo poppers were pretty addictive, Dave was skeptical about making 45 of them, but in less than an hour they were all gone. They got rave reviews from all of our friends and it's certainly something that I will be making again, it was so easy to throw together right before everyone got to our place.
