Skinny Poppers

In case you didn't get the memo, deep fried jalepeno poppers aren't very good for you no matter how delicious they taste.  Typically they range from 80 - 140 calories per popper and they are loaded with fat.  Not so great considering an order is typically 5 or more.  Ok, ready for some great news! I've redone the jalapeno popper and it is now "healthy" - only 40 calories a piece and insanely delicious!


2 bell peppers or 8 Jalapeño peppers

4 Laughing Cow Light Cheese Wedges (any flavor)

8 slices Center Cut Bacon


Cut tops off of peppers and remove seeds. IF using bell peppers, cut into quarters.
Cut each cheese wedge in half. Stuff each pepper section w/ one piece of cheese
Wrap 1 slice of raw bacon around the pepper and secure with a toothpick (soak toothpick in water for 10 minutes so it doesn’t burn)

Place in a pan and bake at 375 degrees for 45 min – 1 hr, or until bacon is crisp.

Cool and serve – 8 poppers

Each popper = 40 calories
