    THE BAKED JALAPENO PEPPERS ARE AWESOME!!! they really taste like you’re cheating on your diet. The filling is so rich tasting. It’s hard to believe they’re only 30 calories each. Tip: I used fresh jalepenos. Make sure you take all the seeds and membrane out, because thats where most of the heat is. They still have a good bite to them.

    Yummy! I’ve made this recipe twice πŸ™‚

    I made this for a party and they all went really quickly! People had no idea they were low in fat. I also used the fresh jalapenos, but you then have to increase the baking time, I almost doubled how long they were in the oven. Delicious!

    I made these as an appetizer and the entire pan was gone in minutes. I used the bottled jalapenos, but I think I will use fresh next time.

    Great recipe, but I just stuck to using cream cheese.

    40 Peppers is alot… has anyone made a smaller batch? If so…what did you use for ingrediant measurements?

  • Kats

    I made about ten. I used about 1/3 a package of cream cheese, quarter cup of cheddar, quarter cup of munster, a couple table spoons of bread crumbs and a little egg wash.

    Am going to try this tonight. Bought two cans of Jalapeno peppers by mistake (grab instead of chili peppers) and have been trying to find a good recipe for them. This sounds great.
