These jalapeno poppers are awesome. I added some crumbled bacon bits and sprayed each one with olive oil spray and baked them in the oven until golden brown at 350 versus frying them in oil. They turned out great and they were the hit of my party. Thank you for posting this recipe!

these were a fantastic addition to my super bowl menu! the only change i made was to use puff pastry instead of wontons (i didn't want to be working the deep fryer during my party-plus the smell of the deep fryer can be offensive! so i guess technically they still were jalapeno popper puffs!) this worked out great because i was able to make these up ahead of time and freeze. then time of party all i had to do was brush with a little egg wash and bake!! thanks for a winner reicpe carol! everyone loved these!!

I cooked these in my deep fryer and served with Bronco Berry Sauce by Todd Wilbur for Arby's Jalapeno Poppers Bronco Berry Sauce (Dip) - for Arby's Jalapeno Poppers (with the best substitutions availible in my kitchen). These are wonderful! This was my first attempt at jalapeno poppers and I will never have the desire to make them any other way! Thank you for posting this!

These are wonderful! Great for satisfying naughty cravings. I didn't even dip them in anything because they were sooo good. I subbed fat free cream cheese and tried baking half of them based on some other recipes I saw. Word to the wise... DO NOT BAKE. Wontons seem to get chewy in the oven despite their crispy look. I regret not frying the whole batch. Thanks for all of your amazing recipes kitten!

I made these for New Years Eve. I made a few slight changes according to what I had on hand. I used an 8 ounce tub of whipped cream cheese, which made mixing easy, and I used fresh jalapeno peppers. I didn't want to have the deep fryer out so I sprayed them with EVOO and baked them in the oven @ 350 until browned. Everyone enjoyed them and they were gone in no time. DH and I both feel they would be even better if they were fried like the recipe states. Of course frying equals less healthy, but more delicious, isn't that they way it usually goes? Thanks for a great addition to our New Years Eve!

OK, Kitten, another winner! I so enjoyed this, as I love poppers, but not the preparation of them. I reduced the recipe by half, and used egg roll wrappers, as I am lazy :-) and it made 10 medium sized egg rolls. I also skipped the green onions, as I don't love onion, but may try a few like that for DH next time. I served them with some hot jalapeno pepper jelly, as a dipping sauce. HOT and delicious! Thanks for sharing, Kittencal! I'll make these again, and soon!

AWESOME!!! I got sooooo many complements about this recipe my friends father even told me he heard I made amazing jalapeno peppers for a party!! -I followed the direction, did not change anything -I did use a damp cloth to cover the wontons (good call!) -I sealed the edges by brushing the edges with a beaten egg and pushing down making sure they were sealed!! AGAIN!! great recipe..love the fact that its not heavily breaded

Excellent puffs! I used fresh jalapenos (never tried canned before) minus the seeds and served these with ranch dressing. I was much more successful making these with the wonton wrappers than I was trying to stuff peppers the "traditional" way, but I'm a bit challenged that way. ;) Just a note: to facilitate the placing of the filling, first spoon it all into a zip lock bag, seal, cut about a 1" piece off a bottom corner and squeeze out the filling onto the wrapper. Thanks for another winner, Kitten! (FYI: I'm no longer able to use the mail features here. Try sandi[at]my.foodweb.com) Love ya!

The only change I made was to use fresh jalapenos, because my husband truly dislikes canned one. This is an excellent recipe and easy to make. To keep the wonton wrappers soft, treat them like phyllo, keep covered with a damp towel or damp paper towels.

Delicious!!! I added some crumbled bacon to the mix and pipped the mix into mini phyllo cups and baked for 15-20 minutes. They were a hit, no leftovers.
