It's the first day of Fall and I couldn't be more excited! Here in Phoenix we don't really get Fall weather, but we do get some what cooler temps. Since we're use to temps over 100 degrees in the Summer, anything below 90 is perfection. The beginning of Fall is also the start of football, tailgates, and holiday parties. I'm all about the food for these events, I mean who isn't right? We've all had jalapeno popper's, but what about in wonton form? Well they taste just as good and the crunchy wonton helps bring another layer of texture to the bite.
I made these Baked Jalapeno Popper Wontons for a friends event. She was hosting a fun nail party, where we all got to try her Color Street nail strips. It was the perfect girls night with Nails, Wine and yummy eats. I served the Jalapeno Popper Wontons with store bought Thai sweet chili sauce, but they also taste great on their own too. You can't go wrong with bacon, cheese and jalapenos. The jalapenos I used weren't spicy, but it would have been nice to have a little kick to it.
If you're planning on going to any tailgates or potlucks soon, I know these wontons will be a hit. If you need to save some time the day of, you could make the filling a couple days in advance, and then just fill the wonton wrappers the day of and bake them. The can also be reheated in the oven to stay warm. If you want them to be spicy, you can always add more jalapenos, or if you're really brave a serrano! I just might have to try that and see what they taste like with some extra spice, I know my hubby would like that!
