Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Instagram might now that I recently started on a new journey…I have joined Weight Watchers and I am working to loose some of the weight I gained due to my health issues.
I don’t know why it was so hard for me to join and share with you. Everyone struggles with weight issues of some sort or another during their lives, right? Having said that, I shared with you before I even shared with my own family.
I’ve since shared, but I have been sneaking lower-fat recipes into our rotation. Guess what? No one has noticed and everything I have tried has been a pretty good success.
Today I am sharing a crowd pleaser – “skinny” jalapeño poppers.
Heat grill to medium high.
Make a long vertical slice on each of the 12 peppers. Basically, you want to open these up large enough to clean out the seeds and fill the pepper. (Whatever you do, DO NOT touch your eyes…Not fun!)
Mix together cream cheese, 1/2 the shredded cheese, onions, cilantro and paprika.
Fill pepper shells with cheesy filling and sprinkle with the remaining cheese and for a bit more heat, the chili powder.
Place on well oiled grill and cook until filling is completely melted.
Derek is a huge fan of spicy. Me? Not so much. I am always trying to find a happy balance between the more tame foods I like and the heat that he is looking for. This skinny jalapeño poppers recipe provided a happy middle.
Are you a spicy food fan?
