Jalapeno Poppers

I can't believe I forgot to put this up here... Where's my brain... :-)

For the Super Bowl a few weeks ago, we decided to try a Hungry Girl recipe for Jalapeno Poppers...

So, here's the recipe (and the link)

Jalapeno Poppers

5 whole, fresh jalapenos

1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese

1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

1/2 cup Fiber One cereal

1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original

salt, pepper and/or garlic powder (Optional, to taste)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the jalapenos in half - lenthwise, and remove the seeds, stems, and membranes (Definitely be careful, and wash your hands... don't touch your eyes either - it stings - Trust me!). Wash pieces and dry them very well; set aside.

Stir to combine cream cheese and cheese shreds. Season the cheese mixture with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Using a blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Season crumbs with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder. Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another. Stuff each pepper half with cheese mixture. Next, carefully coat both sides of each pepper half with Egg Beaters, and then with Fiber One crumbs. Spray pan with nonstick cooking spray and place peppers on baking pan. Cook for 25 minutes (for very spicy poppers) to 30 minutes (medium-hot poppers). Makes 10 poppers.
