This recipe is a riff of the usual jalapeno  popper appetizers. It combines my love of those with my love of the Asian  appetizer: crab rangoon. These do reheat well once you fry them either in a toaster oven or oven so they are perfect for making ahead. I made them  in the flat triangular shape for a shallow fry but these will do well also with the two corners pinched together in the classic style if you have a deep fryer. Just wet the edges with water and they should stick.

Jalapeno Popper Wontons

  • 8 ounces  cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup minced pickled jalapeno
  • 1 tablespoon red jalapeno jelly (for the wonton filling)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 pkg. (48 count) wonton skins
  • 1 cup red jalapeno jelly, melted (for dipping wontons)


  1. Stir together the cream cheese, bacon, jalapeno, one tablespoon jalapeno jelly and garlic salt together in a small bowl.
  2. Place 1-1/2 level teaspoons of the filling onto the center of each wonton skin.
  3. Wet edges with water and fold over to form a triangle, pressing edges together to seal and being careful not to get the filling on the edges (or the wontons will leak).
  4. Heat oil to 325°F. and shallow fry wontons until blistered and golden; drain on paper towel.
  5. Melt remaining jalapeno jelly to use as a dip.
