My family loved these. I have to admit that I didn't even try these because I can't handle spicy things. I made the recipe as written other then I used cheddar jack cheese as that is what I had. I also used jarred Jalapeno's.

Great party food! I could not find the phyllo tart shells so I made my own by cutting up phyllo dough (used four sheets) into small squares and placing them in a miniature muffin pan. They turned out delicious; although, not as attractive as they would have been with the store-bought cups. I will definitely make these again! Thanks for the post. Made for the Everyday is a Holiday tag.

I'm only rating the filling because I used flour tortillas to make the cups instead of phyllo dough. It was good, but too hot. I did have extra large jalapenos, but I really think the heat came from the hot sauce (it had that distinctive hot-sauce flavor.) I recommend going to about 1/2 the amount of hot sauce regarless of the amount of jalapeno. I used a fairly mild kind too - Cholula. Maybe the recipe should have said "hot salsa?" It wasn't too hot for me, but it was for my guests.

These were a huge hit Christmas 2012. I added salt, and a sprinkle of garlic powder on top makes it aromatic. Delicious, thanks : )

Love this! I used half of the hot sauce and it was still plenty hot. I took these to a party and everyone gobbled these up fast!

These are SO easy and SO delicious. I made fifteen for our New Years party and they didnt make it out of the kitchen, they were scarfed so quickly!! I used pre-diced jarred jalape?os and extra Franks red hot because we like spice. Also, I used "pre-cooked bacon pieces for recipes" which is over by the bacon bits and croutons in the dressing aisle. They work GREAT and taste like fresh cooked bacon but without the time/grease! I'm making 75 of these babies for the Super Bowl tomorrow! Thanks for an awesome recipe!!!

I was out of my normal toaster oven/late night snack but happened to have all these ingredients and was wanting to get the tart shells out of my freezer. What an awesome discovery on a random search fr recipes containing tart shells. These were easy (I didn't start assembly until 9:30 at night) and delicious just as written. I wouldn't change a thing. I used Louisiana hot sauce and pre-shredded cheese. I baked them in my toaster oven for the recommended time and enjoyed them with a dr pepper.
