If you love Jalapeno poppers.. you are going to go crazy for these!  Crispy, creamy, cheesy and spicy…  pretty much everything you need to concoct the perfect bite!

I’m kind of addicted to spice..  I use Sriracha like ketchup and can’t really eat anything without adding some sort of heat to it.  One of the all time favorite recipes on this site is Jalapeno Popper Dip so I know you guys like it a little spicy too!

This appetizer is easy to make, you’ll want to make sure the cheese is really well sealed so it doesn’t leak into the oil causing splatters.  These egg rolls are mini (about 2″ long) so they use wonton wrappers and not egg roll wrappers.  Wonton wrappers can be found in most grocery stores in the produce area (or near the tofu).  If you don’t see them, be sure to ask because most stores do have them!


Things you’ll need for this recipe

    1. I have baked them however I do prefer them fried. You could try brushing with oil and bake. Let me know how it works for you!

  1. I’m going to try to make the fried pickles and the jalapeño poppers. The look delicious.

  2. Can you make these ahead of time(how far ahead) and fry them day Of? If so, how should they be stored? Thinking of making these for superbowl this Sunday.

    1. I would suggest freezing these if you make them ahead of time. They can be cooked from frozen for about 4 minutes or until crisp and the filling is hot and melted.

  3. I am making them now. All ready and set to put in the oil. Can’t wait to eat them. I had to make them. They looked so yummy.

      1. bake at 450 on oiled rack or on pan directly , only brush or spray with water, when top is crisp turn and brush or spray with water, until bottom is crisp, presentation is less browned but crispy like fried

    1. You definitely can. You’ll want to use approximately 2 fresh jalapenos, seeded and finely diced or to taste depending on how much heat you would like.

  4. These tasted great, but, i would suggest buying the egg roll wrappers and not the wanton wrappers. They are very small and not so easily handled. Overall the flavor was great.

  5. Hey Holly! Stopping by to let you know that I’m featuring this recipe on the Friday Favorites Link Party tonight at 9pm… congratulations! Can’t wait to see what you link up this week :D
