Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cups

The Super Bowl is just a few days away. Have you planned a big party? Let's be honest here, I could care less about football. But I love any excuse to party! This year I'm stepping up my presentation and making Super Bowl food that is gorgeous but still has classic tailgating flavors. These Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cups fit the bill. Pull these delicious little appetizers out at your football party and you will definitely impress your friends. Plus they are perfect party food because you can just grab and eat!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

The egg roll wrappers were hard to find. I finally had to ask a store worker. At my Super Walmart, they were located in the produce aisle! Who would have guessed that?
Start by cooking your bacon until nice and crunchy. No soggy bacon, please. I baked mine in the oven.
To make the crunchy and cute edible cups, you cut the egg roll wrappers in fourths, like this:

Then carefully push them into a mini muffin pan.

While the cups are baking, mix up your filling.

Then stuff each cup with the creamy filling and sprinkle with bacon bits.

Bacon Jalapeno Popper Cups

1/2 pound bacon (half a package)
1 package egg roll wrappers
1 4 oz. can diced jalapenos
2 8 oz. bricks cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated Mexican blend cheese

Cook bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble.

Cut egg roll wrappers into quarters. Gently press into mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes, or until egg roll wrappers are golden brown. Remove from tin and cool completely.

Beat cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in jalapenos and cheese. Refrigerate.

When it's time to serve, warm the cream cheese mixture in microwave for one minute. Stir, then warm for another minute. Repeat until mixture is heated through and cheese is melted. 

Fill each wonton cup with warm cream cheese mixture, then sprinkle with bacon bits. Serve immediately.

The wonton cups get soggy in the fridge, so only fill as many as you'll eat right away. Since the filling has to be refrigerated, it's best to keep the filling and the cups separate until you are ready to serve them.

Spicy, crunchy, creamy, salty, smoky... these little cups pack a powerful punch! Add them to your Super Bowl party menu. They are sure to be a touchdown!!
