Wonton Cheese Poppers Recipe

One of my favorite restaurant appetizers is fried cream cheese wontons. They are so creamy and the perfect amount of crunch. The amazing thing is there is not alot at goes into making them: a few easy to find ingredients and make 15 minute cook time for a large batch. These little yummies are best served as a party snack {hot} or along side of stir-fry dinner.

    I tried some really amazing Wonton’s at Sam’s Club about a week ago and was thinking that I needed to find a great recipe so I could make my own.. these look amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe I’ll definitely be trying this out :)

  8. melisa says

    These would be great for appetizers for my husband’s friends, when they come over. What kind of oil do you use?

  9. Sherry Compton says

    Yummy recipe and a great addition to Chinese or stir frys or for a snack. My husband and I both love cream cheese poppers. I would want the extra peppers and my husband just likes his plain, but this way we both could have ours the way we want.

  10. Carissa Joslyn says

    looks really good! I’m sure my mom would love it,too! I would just make some without the peppers for my kids! then it’s a win win!

  11. Bhavika Sathavara says

    I love any food that involve cheese..ha ha. Joking aside, this cheese wontons look very delicious. Also the cooking time is quite short, so I am definitely going to make it.

  12. Kadie says

    These look amazing (though I would probably add a little more pepper in there!). I wonder how they’d freeze (pre-frozen).

  13. Lisa K says

    Oh my goodness those look yummy. I love to order these all the time! I really want to make these at home. So I pinned! Thank you for sharing. My favorite is Chinese.

  14. Diana Scholz says

    As the cheese LOVER that I am, I cannot believe I’ve never had these cheesey delicious wontons! I am going to shoprite tonight to get these ingredients!!! (Minus the jalapeno)

  15. lisa says

    I’ve never heard of these. At first, I thought it was a cream cheese filling. I think I’ll try it like that and add a chocolate sauce.

  16. Michelle Salais says

    I make cream cheese wontons all the time! So yummy! I don’t put jalapenos in mine. I put green onion. Cheers!

  17. Jo-Ann Brightman says

    These look delicious and you are right- they are not hard to make. I shall have to try them soon. Thanks for the recipe.

  18. Gwenni B says

    I had no idea that you could buy wonton wraps – this beats buying pre-made, frozen wontons, as you can manipulate the cheese-to-wrap ratio!

  19. Dorothy Boucher says

  21. Joyce Ackley says

    These look so good. I love cheese, and the blend of cheeses sounds especially tasty. I’m not sure the jalapeno peppers would be my favorite flavor, but the cream cheese should cut the hotness and provide a soothing., smooth texture. I am surprised the recipe seems so easy for a gourmet-sounding product.

  22. says

    I have the wanton and I am going to make these soon.They will go on my favorites for appetizers because I just lov ethem.I will be making these often.Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  23. Jo Jenson says

    Love wontons and love cheese. These look so easy to make. Who knew? I’m going to check out local grocery shops for the wonton wraps. Hope I can find them. Thanks for this lovely, easy recipe.

  24. Rebecca Wilson says

    These sound so delicious. They also sound easy, which is important to me right now. I love Chinese food and the cream cheese filled wontons you can get there, a little jalapeno must make it that much better.

  25. Lai says

    oh this is something i should try doing, this really could make a great appetizer that my kids will love. 😀 Thanks

  26. katrina c. says
