1 (12 oz) bag vegetarian burger crumbles (such as Morningstar Farms brand), or use sausage crumbles for spicer taste 1 (8 oz) package light cream cheese, softened 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese 22 large jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
*Note: Be sure to wear rubber gloves when working with peppers, and take care not to touch your eyes. Discard gloves after use.
In a large skillet, saute crumbles over medium heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. In a small mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese and shredded parmesan. Fold in crumble. Spoon approximately one tablespoon of the cheese/crumble mixture into each jalapeno half. Place on an ungreased baking sheet, cheese side up. Bake, uncovered, at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until filling is lightly browned and bubbling.
you are right 1 half of a pepper is not one serving. But, I am like Miss Kitty - would conider one halve of pepper as one serving so, its easier for me to track my food intake - knowing how I can't stop at 8 or 10 or 12 or more!!!
My hubby also loves Jalapenos! I will make this for the holidays. I'm starting to eat more hot peppers myself! I hear this is good for my metabolism plus peppers are packed with good vitamins!
