Jalapeno poppers

Breanne and I tried this with the fiber one and decided it was too sweet. and didn't really enjoy them as much as we thought. so we are still posting the recipe, but I wrote to try reduced fat wheat thins instead of the fiber one. we will post a comment when we have tried it! but we want you to give it a go as well!

5 whole, fresh jalapenos
1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal (or crushed reduced fat wheat thins)
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original (1/4 cup egg whites)
Optional: salt, pepper and/or garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Halve the jalapenos lengthwise, and remove the seeds, stems, and membranes Wash halves and dry them very well; set aside. Next, stir to combine cream cheese and cheese shreds. If desired, season cheese mixture with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder. Using a blender, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. If you like, season crumbs with salt, pepper, and/or garlic powder. Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another. Stuff each pepper half with cheese mixture. Next, carefully coat both sides of each pepper half with egg substitute, and then with Fiber One crumbs. Place peppers on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray, and place in oven. Cook for 25 minutes (for very spicy poppers) to 30 minutes (medium-hot poppers). Makes 10 poppers.
