I’ll be passing along some healthy and easy to fix Super Bowl Party food through out the week.

Jalapeño Poppers

12-18 poppers

Ingredients

12-18 whole fresh Jalape
1 cup nonfat Refried Beans
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or 2% extra-sharp Cheddar cheese
1 Scallion, sliced
1 teaspoon Sea Salt, divided
1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
2 large eggs or 1/2 Cup Egg Beaters
1/2 cup fine Cornmeal
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pam w/ Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Preparation

*  Make a small slit on one side of each pepper. Place the peppers in a large microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on High until just softened, about 5 minutes.
* Meanwhile, combine refried beans, cheese, scallion and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.
*  When the peppers are cool enough to handle, scrape out the seeds with a small spoon (a 1/4-teaspoon measuring spoon works well). Fill each pepper with about 1 tablespoon of the bean filling, or until the pepper is full but not overstuffed (the amount will depend on the size of the pepper). Close the pepper around the filling.
* Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
* Place flour in a shallow dish. Lightly beat eggs in another shallow dish. Combine cornmeal and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a third shallow dish. Roll each stuffed pepper in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then roll in the cornmeal mixture. Place the peppers on the prepared baking sheet. Generously coat all sides of each pepper with cooking spray.
*Bake for 5 minutes. Turn each pepper over and continue baking until hot and the filling starts to ooze in a few spots, about 5 minutes more.
