Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers with Greek Yogurt

Stuffed Jalapenos with Greek yogurt

This is going to be my last healthy recipe for the month of January & it’s actually Super Bowl friendly so you could make it this weekend as well. Just don’t tell the guys they are eating Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese….  I love anything that has to do with jalapenos, normally stuffed jalapenos call for a cream cheese base filling so I put a healthy spin on it with yogurt. Prepare for plenty of pink & red desserts for the month of February.
