Posted: Updated:

• 12 jalapeño peppers, sliced in half lengthwise

• 4.5 oz light cream cheese

• 5 medium scallions, green part only, sliced

• 2 oz shredded low fat sharp cheddar (I used Cabot 50%)

• ½ cup egg beaters or egg whites, beaten

• ½ cup panko crumbs*

• 1/8 tsp paprika

• 1/8 tsp garlic powder

• 1/8 tsp chili powder

• salt and fresh pepper

• spray oil


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Wearing rubber gloves, cut peppers in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and membrane.

2. Combine cream cheese, cheddar and scallions in a medium bowl

3. Combine panko, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another bowl

4. Fill peppers with cheese filling with a small spoon or spatula

5. Dip peppers in egg beaters and place peppers in panko mixture, using a spoon to make sure all the seasoning doesn't fall to the bottom of the bowl

6. Line baking pan with parchment and spray with oil spray. Lightly spray the peppers with a little more oil spray.

7. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Serve hot
