Stuffed Peppers

This is a terrific way to enjoy stuffed jalapeno or Anaheim peppers without deep frying, so you can avoid all the oils and fats if you choose.

It has all the bold flavors you’d expect minus the extra calories. 

Use low fat cheddar cheese, cream cheese and mayonnaise to save even more – you won’t even miss them!
