Grilled Sweet Pepper Poppers......oh my!!!

These little cuties will pop in your mouth! You can use jalapeno peppers, but i prefer sweet peppers. A great friend brought a version of these to a party one time and it was love at first bite. I have changed the recipe a bit  and made it my own. 

Grilled Sweet Pepper Poppers

60 calories for 2 halves! 
Makes 16 servings adjust if you need to!

16 sweet peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
4 ounces fat free cream cheese, softened
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese such as weight watchers brand
1/2 cup finely chopped tomato
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 T fresh, chopped parsley

Prepare grill to medium high heat.  Prepare the peppers and set aside, pat dry. Place all other ingredients into a bowl. Mix well. Fill each pepper half with cheese mixture.  Place on grill for 5 minutes until charred and bubbly.  Enjoy! You are gonna love these! When you clean the peppers, keep the stems on so you can use it to pick up the popper. 

Happy Monday! Stay Healthy.....join me on my adventure.
