INSTRUCTIONS:


  • Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with foil and spritzing with a little olive or oil to prevent sticking. Feel free to use a silicone baking mat or parchment paper instead. All will work.

  • Step 2

Arrange phyllo cups on your baking sheet and set aside. Combine greek yogurt and softened cream cheese in a bowl.

  • Step 3

Add freshly grated cheeses, pickled jalapeños, and garlic powder [optional but delicious!]

  • Step 4

Spoon mixture into cups and bake for approx 13 minutes or until crispy and melty. Feel free to switch the oven or toaster oven to broil for a minute or so for a golden topping!

  • Step 5

I may or may not have eaten a few before popping them in the oven. Holy yum! They’re actually great chilled too! Yes I was so desperate as to try them every which way. I’ll eat them upside down if I have to! SO GOOD!

  • Step 6

Craving an extra kick? Top with some zesty red pepper flakes. You can also garnish with fresh sliced [or pickled!] jalapeno slices! Yum!
