  • Stir together cream cheese and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Fold in jalapeños and hot sauce.

  • Evenly spoon cheese mixture into phyllo cups and sprinkle with bacon bits. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if using. Serve warm.

Make it Kid-Friendly

Before adding the jalapeños and hot sauce, set aside some of the cream cheese–cheddar filling. Use that to fill phyllo cups just for the kids, and top with bacon bits. (You can make up a name: "Cheesy Bacon Crunchies!")
