Simple Jalapeno Poppers

This weekend, I made delicious and simple jalapeño poppers using Kraft Natural Shreds. If you hate spending hours in the kitchen like me, this recipe is for you. It takes only a few ingredients and less than an hour of your time. Trust me. I was busy this weekend doing important things like like lounging by the pool, catching up on a good book, and taking mid-day naps. However, I did take a break from those activities to make this deliciously cheesy appetizer.

You’ll never guess what I added to these poppers … flax seeds! Flax seeds are an easy addition to make any meal more nutritious. They are a rich source of micronutrients, dietary fiber, vitamin B1 and omega-3 fatty acids. 

Aside from flax seeds, you’ll also need Panko, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, colby jack cheese (optional) and of course jalapeños. I already had most of the ingredients to make this dish, but I stopped at Walmart to pick up the Kraft Natural Shreds.

    This is perfect. I’m having a small get together on Saturday, and everyone that’s visiting is a vegetarian! Knew I could come to simply Nicole for some ideas ☺️
