  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds Honey roasted, crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 42 wonton wraps I use the 12 oz package
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 2 jalapenos fresh, grated


  • Grate fresh jalapenos using a cheese grater. This will make about 1/4 cup shredded jalapenos. Either keep the seeds or scoop them out depending on desired spiciness. Add jalapenos to cream cheese block in a bowl.

  • Add crushed pumpkin seeds and 1 tablespoon chia seeds to cream cheese and grated jalapenos.
  • Stir and mash to mix together thoroughly.
  • Add a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture to the center of each wonton wrap (I made about 5-6 wontons at a time). Brush all edges of wonton wrap with water and fold in half to make a triangle shape, press along edges to seal.
  • Brush both sides of wonton wrap with olive oil. Brush one side, flip over and brush the other side.

  • Fold in all three points of the triangle to make a pouch.
  • Cook on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 11-12 minutes until edges of wonton wrap are browned.

  • Serve Jalapeno Pumpkin and Chia Seed Wontons by placing them on a platter or plate. I love the sparkly charger plate for serving because it adds pizzazz and shine.


These wontons are delicious alone even without a dipping sauce. But if a dipping sauce is desired, try them out with sweet and sour sauce. The wontons are best fresh for the crispiness, but the next day they are just as yummy leftover (just become softer). Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! For another yummy appetizer try my Cheddar Hashbrown Potato Jalapeno Bites Appetizer or my Spicy Black Bean Avocado Rollups and Dip.
