I remember the first time I bit into a jalapeño popper – it was so decadently cheesy, crusted with bread crumbs and just a bit spicy. Deep fried and stuffed with cheese, I can only imagine how many calories were in just one of thosejalapeño poppers.
Super Bowl is just around the corner, so when Peapod asked me to create a recipe for them with a Super Bowl theme, I came up with this Light Jalapeño Popper Dip recipe , with all the flavors of a fried jalapeno popper, but in dip form.
I love recreating healthier versions of favorite footballsnacks and have made lighter versions over the years, including a Skinny Queso Cheese Guacamole Dip , Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip , Skinny Philly Cheesesteak Dip , and Skinny Spinach Artichoke Dip . One of my favorite skinny tricks is to substitute pureed low-fat cottage cheese for cream cheese in dips. It might sound a little strange, but trust me, it works.
Flecks of pickled jalapeño pepper and roasted red bell pepper are scattered throughout this cheesy dip, which uses sharp cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese for best flavor. A crunchy breadcrumb topping mimics the crusted exterior of a fried stuffed jalapeño popper.
