Didn't have enough Jalapenos to make full out poppers, but improvised for a creamy and spicy appetizer. You'll want to eat them right away, but they will be molten hot so be careful!!

I took the suggestion of using individual tortilla chips. I used Tostitos scoops. They were perfect .

I thought 2 jalapenos would be too hot, but it needed both. I also found it needed a little garlic salt as it was a lacking a little something. I usually love phyllo shells, but for this recipe, I think I would bake on individual tortilla chips next time. A wonderful foundation...and the mixture was even better after refrigerating for a few days. The bacon is a great bonus (I used real instead of bacon bits). Thanks for a fun idea!

Pretty, Simple, Tasty! I made as stated and put them in mini muffin tins. I also added shredded imitation crab meat (1 cup) so this made 18 filled tarts for me. The crab meat and the peppers were great together and very attractive and gave it a little more filling. They were gone in an instant. Can't wait to serve them again.
