If you like food with a little kick-then you’ll love these Low Point Sausage Stuffed Jalapeños. These make for the perfect potluck or game day dish!

How do I make these Low Point Sausage Stuffed Jalapeños?

 I like to use mild Italian turkey or chicken sausage. The reason I use the mild is because not everyone loves the heat of a spicy sausage. I also love using chicken sausage since it is lower points in comparison to turkey sausage. It’s 7 points for 1 pound as compared to 20 points for 1 pound of the Jennie-o lean turkey sausage.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cut and deseed the jalapeños. Set aside.

Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking spray. Cook chicken or turkey sausage over medium heat until it’s no longer pink; drain. 

In a small mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and cooked sausage. Stir until well combined. 

Spoon 1 Tablespoon of mixture in each jalapeño half. 

Continue until all 40 half jalapeños are stuffed.

Place stuffed jalapeños on a baking sheet. 

Cook uncovered for 20-22 minutes or until bubbly.

Serve with my Skinny Ranch Dressing!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. chicken or turkey sausage ( I use Isernios mild Italian chicken sausage)
  • 1 ( 8 oz.) reduced fat cream cheese 
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 20 large jalapeños, halved lengthwise and seeded 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut and deseed the jalapeños. Set aside.
  3. Spray a large skillet with non stick cooking spray. Cook chicken or turkey sausage over medium heat until it’s no longer pink; drain. 
  4. In a small mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, and cooked sausage. Stir until well combined. 
  5. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of mixture in each jalapeño half. Continue until all 40 half jalapeños are stuffed.
  6. Place stuffed jalapeños on a baking sheet. 
  7. Cook uncovered for 20-22 minutes or until bubbly.

Note:

  • You can deseed and make filling 24 hours before. Just store filling in an air tight container in the fridge. Remove from fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before spooning it into the jalapeño halves.
  • The overall point value is the same whether you use chicken or turkey sausage

The SmartPoint values and nutritional information is estimated and figured based off the brand of ingredients listed in the recipe using the WW app. The SmartPoint values may vary depending on the brand of ingredients used. To calculate the Smartpoint value on a recipe you will need to enter the ingredients in the WW app manually by creating a recipe using the recipe builder. The WW app does not recognize the zero point ingredients in recipes and will calculate it based only off the nutritional information; which will not be accurate.

Your title gave me a chuckle. I thought I was reaching rock bottom during this quarantine, but I guess these jalapenos are feeling down, too.
