Jalapeno Popper Quiche Cups

It happened.

I've caught the won-ton bug again.  A while back I went a teeny bit bonkers and ate meal after meal of random concoctions baked into crunchy little handheld cups.  You've probably spotted a half dozen or so on my recipe page as well.  Though most are my dirty little secrets =)  Not because i'm withholding recipes from you, but because I lack  photo evidence documenting the shenanigans. [Forgive me?  I swear I'll behave for now on!]  In the meantime, I'm dishing out yet another won-ton quiche cup recipe that I wish I could be eating again for dinner right now had I not polished off all of the eggs.  Sorry I'm not sorry?  Don't fret, I'll go grocery shopping soon and whip up all sorts of craziness for you next week.  Promise!

ten minute jalapeno popper mini quiche wonton muffin cups

What's in it?
2 large eggs
8 Nasoya on-ton wrappers
1/2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt [or sour cream]
1-2 Tbsp diced pickled jalapenos [or more!]
a few ounces of grated cheddar cheese
a pinch of garlic powder, salt and pepper

Serve simply with a sprinkling of green onion [which is precisely what I did!] or garnish with a dollop of greek yogurt [or sour cream], chopped green onion, and serve with a side of green salsa for dipping.  Also, get your red pepper flake on... if you're into that sort of thing =)

Brontosaurus Chefs coconut milk pairs nicely with eggs if you're dairy-free!

quick easy mini mexican jalapeno popper quiche cups

Get Cooking!
Preheat oven to 365F.  Gently place wonton squares in a mini-muffin tray spritzed with olive oil.  Crack eggs into a coffee mug along with 1/2 tablespoon of greek yogurt and whisk/beat with a fork. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Stir to incorporate and spoon/pour into your won-ton cups.  Cover each cup with jalapeno and cheese and bake for approx 8-10 minutes or until quiche mixtures fluffs up into a "muffin-top" and the edges of your won-ton cups are toasty + golden brown.

So... How was it?
Amazing!  I think it might be the CRUNCH of the baked wonton wrappers that i'm most addicted to. Or maybe it's the fluffy eggs... melty cheese... and zesty jalapenos!  Paul's cousin Kathy makes these amazing little breakfast bars that are basically layered eggs, cheddar, and pickled jalapeno.  They're beyond addicting and the inspiration behind these little quiche cups. Something about the combination of the crunchy wonton with the eggy cheesy jalapeno-y goodness reminds me of a jalapeno popper, hence the name of the recipe folks!


Class dismissed, go make these immediately =)

  29. Every time you post a new wonton recipe, I kick myself for not having tried one yet! What is wrong with me?! I think I have foodie-ADD...maybe I should draw a picture and put it on my fridge...because obviously visual aides are needed in this sort of situation! Oh god, now I have another disorder that's going to get me locked up in the foodie nut house! Mmm, did someone say nut?? I hope there's PECAAAAAANS! ;)

  33. Do you think you could use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Absolutely! Milk, half and half, heavy cream, coconut milk... They will all work! :)
