Jalapeño Cheese Bites


Our jalapeño plant has gone crazy, so what is one to do with tons of jalapeño? I make jalapeño bites! This is my take on Jalapeño poppers, a lighter version for sure, and in my opinion tastier.

4 oz light cream cheese, softened
4 oz shredded cheese, cheddar, mozz, jack
1 tsp smoked paprika
20 Jalapeños, halved, seeds & ribs removed

Preheat oven to 425.

Combine cheeses & paprika. Fill each jalapeño half with cheese and place on glass baking dish.

Bake 15 minutes or until cheese becomes bubbly and brown.

Serves 4.
