Ingredients

  • 24 wonton wrappers — they usually come 48 to a package
  • 8 ounces of brie cheese cut into cubes a little bigger than dice-sized — you'll need all of the cheese, just basically cut it so you have 24 pieces about the same size
  • 4 ounces mango chutney like this one I just used half of an 8-ounce jar — just see what your store has, if it's a different type of chutney or fruit jam it'll still be good, but just make sure it doesn't have any junky ingredients in it (get a copy of my book for help with that!)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper again, , diced small (or more if you want it to have more of a kick)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts of choice Nancy used crispy pecans, I used pistachios this time
  • Here's a variation I tried recently for the filling and everyone loved it!
  • 2 bricks of cream cheese softened (16 ounces total), I use organic
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 jalapeño pepper again, , diced small (or more if you want it to have more of a kick)
  • About 3 green onions chopped, or more for more flavor
  • About 1 cup or more dried organic cherries or cranberries
  • Optional: chopped bacon!
  • Mix it all up and fill the wontons as directed below and bake 'til filling is hot and edges are golden brown and crispy.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350*.  Place 24 wonton wrappers in your mini muffin pan.  Just tuck the sides a bit so they sit down in there, they don't have to be perfect.
  • Next add the cube of brie cheese in the bottom, and then add a small dollop of mango chutney, about 3/4 teaspoon.  Too much and it's too sweet, not enough and the flavor isn't as tasty. Now sprinkle the jalepenos on evenly. Use more if you like a little more kick.Now divide the nuts evenly between the 24 cups.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or longer until the cheese is melted and they're nicely golden brown on the edges and crispy.
