Jalapeno Poppers

Batter up! These Jalapeño poppers are a crowd favorite when it comes to social gatherings - spicy, crunchy and oozing with a cheesy filling. Can't beat it! The original battered and fried recipe is full of fat and carbs and are not as "munch-friendly" on our Jessie’s Girl macros. Our lightened up version promises all of the crunch and taste at a fraction of the macros. Serve alone, or with light ranch dip (Bolthouse is great!) You can even convert this app to a main course. Stuff the un-battered jalapeños inside of a chicken breast, and batter them up at the end. Dairy sensitive? Try using a dairy soy free cream cheese substitute or try using grain free crushed “tortilla” chips if you're Grain/gluten sensitive. No matter how you mix and match, it is sure to satisfy your taste buds with spice. Enjoy!
