100 Calorie Snack-Inside Out Jalapeno Poppers

20140109-215315.jpg
I had to do it. Someone had to do it. They were begging for it! I’ve stripped stuffed jalapeños of all their glorifried fattiness and turned them inside out. And covered them in whole wheat. And made them bite sized. And packed in every ounce of flavor just the same.

Meet my Inside Out Jalapeño Poppers. These babies are bite sized coins of spicy jalapeños coated in ranch dressing and cheese infused whole wheat crumbs that are baked and then drizzled with creamy light sour cream. Make these for your next football party! They are just under 100 calories per serving.

These were my appetizers to tostadas last week.
