I love being a food blogger… You know why? Because I get to try different things for the sake of keeping up with my blog. Before I would just cook the same things over and over but since I started my blog several years ago, I’ve always been looking for different ways to cook things up. I try not to cook the same things (unless it’s just downright amazing) too often so that I can experiment in my kitchen and try new things and post about them on my blog.

I have been posting different ideas on how to use leftover wonton skins.. I used to buy wonton skins to make wontons…  but now, I think I will buy wonton skins to make tacos, chips, and desserts! Here are wonderful recipes with wonton skins if you’re interested -

Nutella Ravioli
Cinnamon Sugar Wonton Chips
Chicken Wonton Tacos

These are some of the best ways to enjoy crunchy baked wonton skins. And here’s a new one: Jalapeno Popper Wonton Cups.

These make a perfect appetizer… and a perfect lunch in this case, since I had these for lunch yesterday and I was in heaven.

I mixed cream cheese, chipotle, and chopped jalapenos until smooth and creamy and topped wonton skins with a spoonful of the mixture. The chipotle pepper gave them a little heat. But if you don’t want any heat, then omit chipotle pepper.

You will only need 1 chipotle pepper from canned chipotle in abodo sauce. Pulse together 4 ounces cream cheese and 1 chipotle in a food processor until smooth. Add chopped canned jalapeno, about 2 tablespoons to the cream cheese mixture. Place wonton skins in greased muffin tins. Place a spoonful of cream cheese mixture on each wonton skins and push the wonton skins toward the center, like in the pictures above. These are fantastic with sweet chili sauce!
