Guiltless Poppers

Snacks don’t have to be filled with calories – but they do need to be filled with flavor. Try these poppers on holiday buffets and as a game-day treat. If jalapeños are too hot for you, use milder cherry peppers or Anaheim peppers instead. For a more budget-conscious version, substitute shredded cheddar cheese for the Parmesan.
