5 fresh whole jalapeno peppers
1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
Salt, black pepper, and garlic powder, to taste
1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Halve the peppers lengthwise, and remove seeds, stems, etc.
Wash halves and dry them very well.
Stir together cream cheese and shredded cheese.
Optional – Season with salt, black pepper, garlic powder
Using a blender or food processor, grind cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Season crumbs with optional seasonings. Place crumbs in one small dish and egg substitute in another.
Stuff pepper halves with cheese mixture. Carefully coat both sides of each pepper half, first with egg substitute, and then with cereal crumbs. Place peppers on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes (for very spicy poppers)
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes (medium-hot poppers)
