Grilled Jalapeno Poppers - Directions

Jalapeno poppers on grill  Slice jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise, cut off stems, remove seeds. Mix remaining ingredients in a medium bowl: butter, sour cream, shredded cheese, cooked diced chicken. Stuff the halved jalapeno peppers with the above mixture.

Grill at 325 degrees F (medium heat) on a lightly oiled grate for 10 minutes, or until cheese mixture is completely melted.

If not grilling, you can bake in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted. Then enjoy!

If you are a seafood lover, you can substitute the chicken in the stuffed jalapeno poppers with shrimp or fish. Cooked lean ground beef can be substituted for the chicken in these stuffed jalapenos too.

Jalapeno peppers are becoming more well known for their role in weight loss. Did you know that eating jalapenos increases your metabolism?

They are a vegetable low in calories and also rich in fiber. How awesome is that, eating something so tasty that can help you lose weight and burn calories at the same time.

You can also jazz up your grilled jalapeno poppers by adding a little salsa (which is fat free) and fat-free sour cream on top.

Even a dash of dried red pepper flakes can be tasty and make a pretty presentation. I can't wait to go make another batch of these simple but healthy stuffed jalapeno poppers.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Happy Grilling!
