Easy Low Carb Baked Jalapeno Poppers Recipe - No Diets Allowed #Food #Foodie

Lower calorie jalapeno popper

This recipe will satisfy your cravings for jalapeno popper without all the calories in an actual breaded and fried jalapeno popper. I like to use The laughing cow cheese, the creamy swiss light, that has less calories and fat. You can use low fat cream cheese or even the regular kind if you want to. You’ll want to make this over and over again if you, like me, are a jalapeno popper lover but don’t always like to eat fried food.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium jalapenos
  • 4-6 oz of laughing cow cheese or cream cheese depending on the size of your jalapenos
  • 4 oz shredded cheese I like to use cheddar or provolone
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350º F.
  2. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove white membranes and seeds. If you don’t like a lot of heat, make sure to remove all the membranes from the inside of the jalapeno. I like to leave the top stem on because it looks cute and prevents the cheese from leaking once it melts.
  3. Sprinkle a tad of salt and pepper over jalapenos. Fill each half of jalapeno with cream cheese, spreading it with a butter knife or a spoon. Sprinkle cheese evenly over cream cheese.
  4. Place each jalapeno half on a baking sheet with the cheese filled side facing up.
  5. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese on top is brown.
  6. This is so easy and quick and can be easily assembled ahead and kept in the fridge until baking time.
