Jalapeno Poppers

Sonic and Jack in the Box – eat your heart out!!  Due to the fact that 4 of Sonic’s Cheddar Peppers are 330 calories and 17 grams of fat and 5 of these poppers are a little over 100 calories and only 1 gram of fat – I think I will choose these!!  They are really good!!  :-)


  • 10 whole, fresh jalapenos
  • 1/2 cup fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Fiber One cereal
  • 1/2 cup Egg Beaters, Original
  • Optional: salt, pepper and/or garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Halve the jalapenos lengthwise, and remove the seeds, stems, and membranes (wear gloves if you can!  I did not and I have blisters on my fingers!!).
  2. Wash halves and dry them very well; set aside.
  3. Next, stir to combine cream cheese and cheese shreds. If desired, season cheese mixture with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder.
  4. Using a blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. If you like, season crumbs with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder.
  5. Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another.
  6. 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.
  7. Place peppers on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray, and place in oven. Cook for 25 minutes (for very spicy poppers) to 30 minutes (medium-hot poppers). Makes 20 poppers.
