Gluten-Free (Good!!!) Superbowl Food

So... my team lost yesterday.  But the Bears really didn't have a shot unless the Packers messed up, and they didn't.

So goes football.

So... what does one make for Football Food when you have to eat gluten-free?

Poppers. 

Yes... poppers.

Based off an older Weight Watchers recipe, I have been making these for YEARS because they are good, and easy.

Halve your jalapenos.  De-seed/rib them.  If you are like me, you might want to wear gloves while you do this - I can do one jalapeno without a lot of pain, but if I am doing more than that, I need rubber gloves to deal with them.

Make a mixture of half low-fat cream cheese and half shredded cheddar cheese.  I did five whole jalapenos, which was about 2 oz of cream cheese and 2 oz of shredded cheddar.  I also added some diced/seeded roma tomatoes that I salted & drained.  I like the little bit of tomato.

Fill your jalapenos.  If you have time, stash them in the fridge.

To cook them, beat up an egg (or a couple if you are doing a lot) and then dip the poppers cheese-side-down into the egg, then into some type of crumb-thing (I used Corn Chex - corn flakes also work).  Place on a sheet tray and cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

And you have lovely, lovely poppers.


(they also work, sans the crumb crust, VERY nicely on a grill - cook until the peppers are soft and cheese is bubbly)
