Terrific Tailgating and Sunday Follows




One of my all time favorite appetizers is Jalapeno Poppers. I love the fried ones, with a crispy outer crust, soft melted cream cheese, and peppery flavor. For this recipe, you will use your grill and you wont miss the crispy deep fried crust.

Ingredients:

1 cup fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
16 jalapeƱo peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded (about 1 1/2 pounds)
Cooking spray
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl, stirring well. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cheese mixture into each pepper half. Place pepper halves, cheese side up, on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill peppers 5 minutes or until bottoms of peppers are charred and cheese mixture is lightly browned. Carefully place peppers on a serving platter. Sprinkle with cilantro.
