Jalapeno Popper Cups


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!!

12 mini phyllo tart shells
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
