Jalapenos are my favourite, and so is cheese, so naturally I needed to create a Healthy Jalapeno Poppers recipe. These are filled with Organic Cream Cheese, some Organic Cheddar and then are baked in the oven until they are golden with perfection! Serve these at your next cocktail party and match them with the sugar-free margaritas for the perfect combo.
