Recipe Time! Baked Jalapeño Peppers

Here's a nice, low calorie snack I made tonight.  Okay, low calorie only if you can stop after a couple!

Baked Cream Cheese Jalapeño Peppers

12 fresh Jalapeño peppers, halved lengthwise, stems, seeds and membranes removed
1/2 container Philadelphia Light Cream Cheese - Chive & Onion
1/4 cup finely shredded Cheddar Cheese

Pre-heat oven to 425.

In bowl, combine cream cheese and shredded cheese.  I also used 1/2 of one jalapeño and chopped it finely and mixed it.

Spoon cheese mixture into jalapeños.  Place on foil lined baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes.


Note: The peppers I used were about 3 inches long, if using larger peppers either double recipe or use 6 peppers only.  Also double the nutritional info.

(I forgot to take a picture until I already dirtied my plate!)
