I LOVE jalapeno poppers, something about being able to eat an entire hot pepper was very enticing as a child. I thought only the cool people could handle spicy food. As I got older I realized a jalapeno isnt as hot as some other peppers so I am not that cool lol but I still enjoy the snack.
Some ingredients can be swapped or replaced, I dont eat dairy any more so I swap out vegan yogurt. Just remember that all steps are crucial in getting a delicious final result. Read all of the directions before you begin and dont forget to let cool at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.

20 MEDIUM JALAPEÑO PEPPERS
1 CUP WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR
1 CUP CORNMEAL, FINELY GROUND
1 TSP BAKING POWDER
1 TSP SEA SALT
1 TSP CHILE POWDER
1/2 TSP CUMIN, GROUND
3/4 CUP PLAIN YOGURT
1/4 CUP EGG WHITES
3 TBSP HONEY
1/3 CUP CILANTRO SPRIGS, CHOPPED
3 GREEN ONIONS, THINLY SLICED (ABOUT 1/3 CUP)
1 1/4 CUP SHREDDED CHEDDAR CHEESE, DIVIDED
1/3 CUP SOUR CREAM ( OPTIONAL)
1/3 CUP ALL NATURAL JARRED SALSA ( OPTIONAL )
Preheat oven to 400F
Wearing gloves, cut stem end off each jalapeño & discard. Cut peppers in half lengthwise and, using a small paring knife or a teaspoon, carefully cut or scoop out seeds & discard. Place peppers cut side up on a parchment lined baking sheet; set aside. (NOTE: Most of the heat in a jalapeño pepper is in the seeds. By removing the seeds, we’re left with a flavorful pepper with a great little kick.) In a medium size bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, chili powder & cumin; set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together yogurt, egg whites & honey. Add yogurt mixture, plus cilantro, green onions & 1 cup cheese to dry ingredients & mix well until just combined.
With gloves, spoon about 2 tsp mixture into the center of each jalapeño half. Smooth tops of mixture & place jalapeños back onto baking sheet, filling side up.
Place tray into oven & bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle stuffed jalapeños with remaining 1/4 cup cheese & continue to bake for 2 more minutes or until top is golden brown & cheese is melted.
Let cool at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving. Arrange on a platter & serve immediately with sour cream &
salsa for dipping, if desired.
