Green Pepper Wonton Poppers

Our garden grew lots of green peppers this year so I decided to use some store bought won tons pastries to make us a yummy Popper treat! Easy and so delish! The sweet chili sauce really tops it off well!

Ingredients:

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. lowfat cream cheese
  • 1 pkg. prepackaged Won ton squares
  • dash olive oil or cooking spray
  • Sweet Chili Sauce (found by preserves in grocery store)

Directions:

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.

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

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.
