With the Super Bowl quickly approaching most of us are looking for yummy and healthy snacks to serve during the big game. Here’s my super simple and healthy take on a Super Bowl favorite, baked jalapeño poppers.
I always try to cut dairy and starches when possible, so my version is vegan and without breadcrumbs.
The original recipe can be found here: Skinny Taste
- 12 jalapeño peppers-sliced in half lengthwise
- 4 oz light cream cheese- I used Tofutti
- 4 oz shredded low fat sharp cheddar cheese-I used Daiya
- 7-10 medium scallions- chopped
Step 1- pre-heat the oven to 350.
Step 2- wash the jalapeños and slice in half length wise.
Step 3- using a small knife or spoon remove the seeds and membrane from the jalapeño halves.
Step 4- combine the following ingredients in a bowl:
Step 5- spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Step 6- using a small spatula, fill each jalapeño half with cheese mixture and place on the baking sheet.
Step 7- bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the jalapeños are warm to the touch.
