Tuesdays at the Table - Jalapeno Poppers

Happy New Year!  As we transition away from the holidays, some of us are trying to get a bit healthier...but football games still mean finger foods.

Jalapeno poppers are one of my favorites!  Here is a slightly healthier version that still tastes as delicious as the "naughty" version.  (My favorite full fat version of jalapeno poppers can be found here.)

Jalapeno Poppers

10 jalapeno peppers
1 cup Greek yogurt (low-fat or fat free cream cheese can be substituted if you don't like yogurt)
1 cup cheddar cheese (grate your own for better melting)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely minced (I don't like cilantro, so I use italian parsley)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (plain, wheat, gluten free, panko...your choice)

Slice jalapenos vertically, removing the seeds and membrane.

In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, salt, pepper, cheese and cumin.  Fill your jalapenos with the mixture.

Coat the top of your jalapenos with breadcrumbs, then bake at 350 for approximately 25 minutes (until the jalapenos get bubbly).  Serve warm!
