Similar to a fresh and fruity spin on crab rangoons, this jalapeno wonton recipe makes for an easy, crowd-pleasing appetizer. Rather than worrying about how to make wontons from scratch, start with store-bought wonton wrappers.

Stir in one third of the minced jalapeños and cilantro.

  • Place a rounded teaspoon of cheese mixture on each wonton wrapper. Lightly brush water on the edges of the wonton wrapper. Fold corner to corner, forming a triangle. Press edges lightly to seal. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and cheese mixture. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Bake in the preheated oven for 14 to 16 minutes or until wonton wrappers are crisp and golden brown.

  • Serve hot poppers with dipping sauce.

Handling Hot Peppers

* Because hot chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid contact with chiles as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the chile peppers, wash your hands well with soap and water.

3 stars because I wasn't impressed, but a couple guests were & wolfed them down! Not hard to make. I thought the poppers themselves were tasty, but the salsa was underwhelming, even after seasoning w/more salt & pepper. The bell pepper overshadowed the peach. I should have used 2 jalapeños instead of 1. I'd make these again substituting jarred salsa.
