Ingredients

  • 24 large jalapeno peppers
  • 6 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 package (8 ounces) imitation crabmeat, chopped
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 12 turkey bacon strips, halved widthwise

Directions

  1. Cut stems off jalapenos; remove seeds and membranes; set aside. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder until blended. Stir in crab and cheese.
  2. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of the bag. Pipe filling into jalapenos. Wrap each with a piece of bacon; secure with toothpicks.
  3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
