How to make Healthier Jalapeno Poppers
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Line a sheet pan using aluminium foil. On top of the foil, place a cooling rack.
Step 3: After washing the jalapenos, dry them well. Slice in half lengthwise, then remove seeds and membranes.
Step 4: Place the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, paprika, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well and set aside.
Step 5: In a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with the grated Parmesan cheese. Set aside.
Step 6: In the bowl of a stand mixer, place the egg whites. Beat on medium speed until frothy.
Step 7: Fill the jalapenos with the cream cheese mixture using a spoon. Into the egg whites, dip each filled jalapenos, shaking the excess off. Into the breadcrumbs, lightly press the jalapeno to coat. On the cooling rack, arrange the jalapeno poppers.
Step 8: Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the breadcrumb topping of the poppers is golden brown. Once done, take the jalapeno poppers from the oven and serve right away with your preferred ranch dressing. Enjoy!
