Jalapeno Swappers

5 fresh whole jalapenos
1/2 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 cup fat free liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese
Optional: salt, black pepper, garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Halve the jalapenos lengthwise and remove the seeds, stems, and membranes. Be very careful when handling jalapenos. Wash your hands frequently and well, and avoid touching your face and eyes. Wash halves and dry them very well. Set aside.

Stir together cream cheese and shredded cheese. If you like, season cheese mixture with salt, black pepper, and/or garlic powder.

Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. If you like, season crumbs with salt, black pepper, and/or garlic powder. Place crumbs in one small dish and egg substitute in another.

Stuff each jalapeno with the cheese mixture. Next, carefully coat both sides of each jalapeno half, fist with egg substitute and then with Fiber One crumbs.

Place jalapenos on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray and place in the oven. Cook for 25 minutes (for very spicy poppers) to 30 minutes (medium-hot poppers).

Makes 2 servings.
