Weight Watchers Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

Ingredients:
- 2 sprays non fat olive oil cooking spray
- 2 oz light cream cheese
- 1/2 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp fat-free mayonnaise
- 8 small jalapeno peppers
- 1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
- 1 cup Fiber One Cereal (ground to breadcrumb like consistency)
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 16 slices Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese and mayonnaise; mix well and set aside. Halve jalapenos lengthwise and remove seeds. (Oil and seeds from the peppers can be irritating — wear gloves or put plastic bags over your hands. And don’t rub your eyes.) Stuff jalapeno halves with cream cheese mixture.
Place egg substitute in a shallow dish. Place Fiber One crumbs in a separate shallow dish, and mix in salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Dip stuffed jalapeno halves into egg substitute and then roll in Fiber One crumbs to coat. Then wrap one slice of bacon around popper, similar to how it appears in this photo:

  1. way too putsie!! I like to take jalepenos – slice them as above then put in light cream cheese only. Then wrap in turkey bacon.  Bake for about 20-25 minutes til bacon is done.  Trust me – they are delicious!!!!

  2. Poppers rock. I made them with turkey bacon and regular bacon. My husband liked the ones with turkey bacon the best. They r going to the super bowl party tonight

  3. I've made these with crumbled bacon pressed into the cheese instead of wrapping it in bacon. It was great and since I used the pre-packaged real bacon bits, it was much easier.

  4. You can also put these inside a hamburger for the grill :) Makes an awesome popper burger.

  5. Quick Question says:

    I was just wondering how many calories (or points) the bacon adds? Where I live, it's hard to find Turkey Bacon very often. Being someone that loves Jalapeno Poppers just with cream cheese… does the bacon really make the poppers, or would they still be awesome without it?

    Thanks so much!

    • If you decide not to use the bacon, don't worry — it's still an amazing delicious recipe without it! I've prepared it a few times without the bacon and they were GREAT! The turkey bacon that I use in this recipe adds only 20 calories to each popper, so it won't make a huge difference if you eliminate it, but if you choose to use regular bacon to the recipe instead, that will add on about 1 -2 Points per serving (which is 2 poppers), so be careful!
