Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Phyllo Bites are the perfect healthy, spicy appetizer with a crunch.
Cheese, glorious, cheese. Oh how I adore thee! I love stinky, pungent cheese, creamy, soft cheese, rugged aged cheese and smoky, fragrant cheese. There is something about that ooey, gooey, melted goodness. I especially love cheese stuffed in a jalapeno, breaded and deep-fried. Cheese and jalapeno go together like buffalo sauce and chicken, sausage and peppers, peanut butter and jelly. They were made for each other. It’s a marriage made in heaven. So I had to lighten them and came up with Stuffed Jalapeno Phyllo Bites. I cannot live without these.
They still have the cheesy goodness of a jalapeno popper and that irresistible crunch. They even have a little bacony madness to them. Thanks to goat cheese they also have a little tang. Stuffed Jalapeno Phyllo Bites would make the perfect appetizer for a picnic or a munchie during a football game. They remind me of “man food” yet they are still light enough for a woman. You know they are going to be a crowd pleaser. These will be gone in a flash. Grab one while you can.
I know working with phyllo dough can be finicky and fiddly but it is so easy in this recipe. There is not a lot of layering sheets together. One sheet will wrap 2 stuffed jalapeno. You just wrap it around. It is that easy. You can also refreeze the phyllo you don’t use. Even better, make a double batch and freeze some. Don’t cook them, just wrap them in phyllo and freeze. You can have Stuffed Jalapeno Phyllo Bites whenever the need arises.
