All About These Lightened Up Jalapeño Poppers

If you are a jalapeño popper lover like I am, you will go nuts over these Lightened Up Jalapeño Poppers! They are so easy to make for a quick appetizer or snack, and this recipe can also be doubled, tripled, or quadrupled (or more!) if you’re looking to feed a crowd! If you’re vegetarian, you can leave the bacon out without sacrificing any taste.

What You’ll Need

Equipment

  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Small bowl
  • Spoon
  • Baking sheet

Ingredients

  • Jalapeños
  • Whipped cream cheese
  • Fat free shredded cheddar cheese
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Bacon pieces

How To Make These Lightened Up Jalapeño Poppers

First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Then, cut each jalapeño in half and remove the seeds and the veins. If you like more heat, leave some of the seeds in tact. Be sure to wash your hands so you don’t accidentally rub your eyes afterwards. For the filling, combine the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Fill each jalapeño half with 1/2 tablespoon of filling and top with a sprinkle of bacon pieces. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the jalapeños soften up, the cheese melts, and the bacon crisps up.

Preparation And Storage

The great thing about these jalapeño poppers is that you can prep them ahead of time and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to put them in the oven. Additionally, if you’re serving a large crowd, you can prep several trays of these and bake them off as each batch starts to run out; that way you constantly have a hot batch coming up!
