Author Notes: This is my take on jalapeno wonton poppers, the recipe you see all over the internet where cheese is combined with jalapeno peppers, wrapped in a wonton wrapper, fried and dipped in a sauce. I put the sauce right in and form into a mini egg roll making for a nice little sweet and spicy bite (or two).inpatskitchen

Makes 20 to 25 sweet hots

  • 4 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and very finely diced
  • 20 to 25 square wonton wrappers
  • Vegetable oil for pan frying
  1. Thoroughly combine the cream cheese, chili sauce, sugar and diced jalapeno.
  2. Place a wonton wrapper in front of you with a pointed end facing you. Place a teaspoon of the filling on the bottom third of the wrapper.
  3. With clean hands, wet the edges of the wrapper with a little water. Fold that bottom corner over the filling, fold in the sides. The wrapper will look like a tiny envelope. Roll from the bottom away from you, forming a little egg roll. Make sure all edges are well sealed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  4. Heat enough vegetable oil in a medium frying pan to go up about an inch. Place a few of the rolls in the oil and fry about 20 to 30 seconds on each side until golden. Don't overcrowd the pan. Serve warm.
