Baked Jalapeno Popper Bites


Who loves bar food? I love bar food. I love hot wings. I love greasy burgers. I love those fried jalapeno poppers smothered in ranch dressing. I’m sure many people can agree. What I don’t love about bar food is the food baby I have for the next 12 hours after eating bar food. I clicked a link on Pinterest one day of some baked jalapeno popper bites. Too bad they were NOT baked, and the pinner just wrote that in the comments. Sad day. I took it into my own hands to make BAKED jalapeno popper bites and came up with these bad boys.

Not only are they gooey, cheesy, jalapeno-ey deliciousness, they’re low calorie and take all of about 15 minutes to make. Usually 5 jalapeno poppers is around 350 calories. This whole recipe (8 poppers) is less than that. Can’t get any better than that right?!

  3. Put 1 jalapeno ring in each wrapper
  4. Dip your fingers into the bowl of water and lightly run your fingers over the edges of a wrapper (this make the edges stick together).
  5. Fold the wrapper so it forms a triangle around the insides (you may have to pick it up and press it a little to make sure the jalapeno lies flat and the edges close up). Side Note: I horrendously need a manicure.Image
  6. Once closed, put each bite onto a greased (spray with cooking spray) baking sheet.
  7. Spray the tops of the bites with cooking spray then put into the oven for 5 minutes.
  8. Flip them and bake for another 3 minutes.
  9. Let them cool a little bit and dig in!
