This is easiest done in a food processor, you'll need one with at least a 6 cup capacity. Adjust the garlic and jalepeno to suit your taste. Also, a bit of extra virgin olive oil may be added (about 1-2 Tb) if needed, for a creamier mouth feel.
Serving suggestion:
Serve on a bed of spring greens salad mix with whole grain pita bread or crackers, quartered hard boiled eggs, chopped green onions, olives, tomato wedges, cucumber rounds with a bit of extra virgin olive oil drizzled over it and finish with a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Hummus

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

Kim's lowfat jalapeno poppers
Very Good 4.3/5
(58 ratings)

A tasty variation on the traditional popper. My hubby likes these for superbowl sunday. You can also vary the recipe by adding 2 -4 T fat free sharp cheddar shreds to the cream cheese mixture. Also you can use panko crumbs for a crispier coating. Make these at least once before serving to company, as it takes a knack to get them to come out nice looking.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.
