I love Jalapeño Poppers, but I don't like the calories and fat, so here is a healthier version that is super easy to make at home. You get all the taste with none of the guilt!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- 8 Jalapeños, halved and seeded
-8 oz. low fat cream cheese
-1/2 cup sharp cheddar
- 2 green onions
-1 tsp dried cilanto
-1 tsp dried parsley
-1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 6 slices of bacon or turkey bacon (preferably with no nitrates/nitrites)
- parmesan cheese
In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients together except for the jalapeños and parmesan cheese. Once ingredients are combined, fill the jalapeños with the cheese mixture. Lay flat on a pan with aluminum foil. Once they are filled sprinkle them with parmesan cheese, and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until the filling starts to brown. Let cool and Enjoy!!
