Healthy Jalapeño Poppers

healthy-jalapeno-poppersEating with your fingers is fun — I’m not embarrassed to do it, even in public. That’s one of the reasons why bar food, along with the spicy, crunchy salt coating, is so darn satisfying.

I don’t believe in giving up anything when it comes to food, but I don’t want my nibbles to take up my whole allotment of fat for the day. I created this version of jalapeño poppers that are baked but still have the yummy contrast of creamy filling with crunchy breadcrumb coating.

While it’s fun to meet friends out for munchies and a glass of wine at the bar, when the weather gets rainy and chilly, I’d prefer to do more entertaining in my home. Making treats like this — served alongside a crudité platter, or maybe a plate of toast with cream cheese and smoked salmon — makes an easy, light spread to catch up over the latest gossip.
