Pretty, Simple, Tasty! I made as stated and put them in mini muffin tins. I also added shredded imitation crab meat (1 cup) so this made 18 filled tarts for me. The crab meat and the peppers were great together and very attractive and gave it a little more filling. They were gone in an instant. Can't wait to serve them again.
I thought 2 jalapenos would be too hot, but it needed both. I also found it needed a little garlic salt as it was a lacking a little something. I usually love phyllo shells, but for this recipe, I think I would bake on individual tortilla chips next time. A wonderful foundation...and the mixture was even better after refrigerating for a few days. The bacon is a great bonus (I used real instead of bacon bits). Thanks for a fun idea!
We LOVED these! The only phyllo shells I can buy come in packs of 15. I doubled this recipe for 60 tarts and had just enough filling. It can be a bit tedious filling the shells so next time (and yes there will be a next time) I'll pipe the filling in. I made these ahead of time w/no issue. We didn't use them all so I froze the extras in the Phyllo tart trays in a Ziploc for future use. Good stuff! Surprisingly I actually preferred the tray I made bacon-less to the ones topped w/bacon bits. THANKS for a great appetizer recipe Jessina!
Awesome recipe! I ended up using phyllo cough and using a regular side cupcake pan. Therefore I doubled the recipe. I also added more Jalapeno's. Everyone LOVED this recipe! Will make many more times. Thanks for sharing.
This is the most fantastic appetizer I have ever made. I have to make double the recipe (it's more convenient since cream cheese comes in 8 oz instead of 4) but in order to accommodate, I used 6 peppers, and 2 cups of shredded cheddar over 30 cups (the packs come in 15 where I buy them) and just left out the hot sauce. Even will all the changes, it still turned out GREAT. And unlike store-bought jalapeno poppers, these require not ranch to serve with.
These were so easy and EVERYONE loved them! I even had 3 people ask for the recipe before I left the party! Anything with less than 6 ingredients is on my list of the best recipes to have and with the rave reviews you can count on me doing this one over and over again! I made the filling the day before and kept it in the fridge overnight. I took it out to get to a "spreadable room temp" and just before the party popped it in the oven! EASY!!!
Absolutely delicious (from a traditional popper lover)! I had a jar of diced jalapenos in my fridge so I used those instead of fresh jalapenos. I wasn't sure of the translation from fresh jalapenos to jarred but I used too much (5 tablespoons) and they were delicious but just a tiny bit too spicy for my (and a few others at our party's) taste. Will definitely make these again probably with 3 tablespoons of diced jalapenos. I wasn't sure what "hot pepper sauce" was (hot sauce?) but we had an open bottle of Footy's wing sauce and I used that and it was great. We served it with habanero jelly (not very spicy on its own) and the sweetness combined with the spiciness is amazing! Love this recipe - they are addicting and definitely beware of the molten factor when they first come out of the oven!!
The filling was very good but they do not set well for a party because they must be eaten hot. If you plan on eating these within 10 minutes of pulling them out of the oven then you ll enjoy them. I doubled the recipe so I had left over filling. I baked the left over filling and served with chips the next day. This was much better! Also I substituted some smoked Gouda cheese for the bacon bits since I am a vegetarian. This gave I a very nice Smokey flavor without the meat.
