Wow these are spicy! Jalapeño Poppers!

I was craving something spicy and not too fatting so I decided to make my version of Jalapeño  Pepper Poppers. You can really put anything into a won ton wrapper and you can make these as spicy as you want.
Make sure that you make a lot because they go really fast.

Ingredients
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers
20 (3.5 inch square) wonton wrappers
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash of lemon pepper
1/2 cup duck sauce
Kosher salt

Directions

In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese and jalapeno peppers, garlic powder and lemon pepper. Arrange wonton wrappers a few at a time on a clean dry surface. Set a cup or small bowl of water nearby. Place about a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto the center of each wrapper. Moisten your fingertip in the bowl of water and trace the edges of the wonton wrappers. Fold into triangles or follow directions on the package for desired shapes. This part can be done ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.

Pre-heat oven to 400, spray the wontons with cooking spray and cook for about 10 minutes or until brown and crispy looking. Sprinkle with Kosher salt.

Welcome to the Foodie Blogroll!

I love these jalapeno poppers. The ones I normally do are cream cheese stuffed peppers wrapped in bacon and then smoked but I like these done in wontons. Great idea.
