Baked Jalapeño Popper Wontons – ★★★★★

ImageBefore I go into my mini-review of the recipe I want to admit to the terrible quality of the photo accompanying this entry. I made these on Halloween and my little monster (literally… Chance was Mike Wasowski from Monsters Inc for Halloween) was eager to go trick or treating. I usually take a couple photos and choose the best one but this time I took one and it came out really crappy. So please excuse that. Onto the recipe… This one was a hit! I tend to find awesome appetizers and make them for dinner. This one starts out creamy and flavorful but by the time you swallow your bite this wonton will kick your tastebuds into heat overdrive! I used a mixture of spicy jalapeños and carrots to really add heat. Perry gave these 5 stars and here is why:

“The only way these could be better is if they were served with a sauce. I really like the “after heat” of these wontons. Its tricky because at the first bite you don’t think its too hot but after that first bite you can definitely taste the spice. I also like that they weren’t dripping in oil. I’m used to wontons being fried and leaving my stomach in knots. Kelsey baked these ones which saved not only my stomach but also the flavor because I believe fried foods just taste like burnt oil. I’d like to have a ton of these in the freezer to throw in the oven for a snack.”
