Jalapeno Cheese Puffs

Recipe By: Rebecca Swift
“If you like jalapeno poppers, you will love these fried wontons stuffed with cheese and jalapeno!”


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers

2 cloves garlic, pressed

3 green onions, diced

1 (16 ounce) package wonton wrappers

1 quart vegetable oil for frying


In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, jalapeno peppers, garlic and green onions.

Fill wonton wrappers with approximately 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture each. Fold wrappers into triangles and press the edges with a moistened fork to seal.

In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Drop 4 wontons at a time into the oil and quickly fry, turning once. Remove when golden brown and drain on paper towels.
