  • Total Time: 40

  • Diet: Vegetarian


These Healthy Baked Jalapeno Poppers are filled with a delicious, creamy mixture of cream cheese, Greek yogurt and spices. They are super easy to make and feed a crowd!


  • 12 fresh jalapenos

Creamy Filling

  • ½ cup Low Fat Cream Cheese 
  • ½ cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp taco seasoning
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt


  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs


  1. Prepare the Jalapenos: For this step, I recommend wearing gloves to avoid the stinging from the seeds. Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise (from the stem, downwards). Use a spoon to scoop out all the seeds.
  2. Make the Creamy Filling: In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients under “Creamy Filling” and set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F.
  4. Assemble the Jalapeno Poppers: Place the jalapenos on a baking sheet with the cut open side face up. Use a spoon to fill the jalapenos with the creamy filling. Sprinkle it with cheese and breadcrumbs. 
  5. Airfry or Bake for 30 minutes or under the breadcrumbs turn golden brown and the creamy filling is bubbling.
