Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut one green pepper up into 1/2 inch cubes. I placed them into my microwave for 90 soeconds to pre-cook/soften them before mixing them into the softened cream cheese.
I lay out all of the wonton squares and add one teaspoon of the green pepper/cream cheese mixture into the center of each wonton square.
Next, I fold over the square (wetting the edges so they stick closed and fold triangle each point toward the center so they don't burn.
I spray a light cookie sheet with cooking spray, then add the wontons with a little space in between each. I sprayed some of the wontons and brushed some with olive oil. It didn't seem to make a difference either way. Both turned out great.
I placed them in the oven at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes or until they were pleasantly browned along the edges.
I let them cool a little and then served them with chilled Sweet Chili Sauce.
I did freeze some wontons (before cooking) by laying them out on a cookie sheet in the freezer for another day since this batch made 25 wontons.
Source: I saw a version of this recipe at allrecipes.com but it used jalapeno peppers and deep fried the wontons. I used green peppers and tried to make mine a little healthier by baking them instead.

I have made this with chopped clams, shrimp, crab (if using seafood I like to add a teaspoon of lemon juice), cooked spinach. I have even made them as a desert with just cream cheese and the last few min., sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top of them. No sauce needed but a little soft ice cream goes well. If you have doubts about the seal take a fork to the edges to seal.
