Who doesn’t love a good jalapeño popper? A spicy jalapeño surrounded by a savory, crispy crust makes a yummy snack. The only problem is, this snack isn’t healthy and will most likely leave you unsatisfied and still feeling hungry. The thick breaded coating is full of empty carbs that might satisfy your taste craving but won’t satisfy your hunger.
Is there a way to make a healthier, filling snack without losing the spicy crunchy taste of a jalapeño popper?
Broccoli Jalapeño Poppers
Broccoli jalapeño poppers are the perfect alternative to one of your favorite fried snacks. Florets of broccoli coated in crisp jalapeño bean chip crust will take care of your spicy food craving while giving you the health benefits of beans and broccoli.
You might be skeptical of the broccoli part of these jalapeño poppers, but we promise this broccoli isn’t like any you’ve had before. It’s crispy, spicy and full of flavor. You won’t even be able to tell you’re eating broccoli.
Now that we’ve hyped this delightful snack up so much, you’re probably wondering how to make broccoli jalapeño poppers yourself. We’ve got a super easy recipe for you to follow, so your kitchen will be poppin’ with these broccoli jalapeño poppers in no time.
At Beanfields, we like to keep things simple, especially when it comes to recipes. This recipe only requires you to have three ingredients: broccoli, olive oil, and our Nacho Jalapeño chips.
Break your broccoli up into pieces small enough to pop into your mouth, toss it in a bit of olive oil and coat in our artisanal flavored bean chips. Then bake them in the oven at 375 for around 40 minutes. That’s it. Simple, easy and quick to make, and you can adjust the cooking time to your preferred level of crispness.
The Perfect Appetizer
Once you’ve had these broccoli jalapeño poppers, you’ll want to make them every chance you get. You might want to keep them all to yourself, but they’re also good for sharing. They’re a great snack for your next potluck or poker night and the perfect appetizer for your next dinner party. Your friends, family and coworkers are sure to love these little pieces of spicy heaven just as much as you do.
Plus, they’re great for anyone with special diets or allergies. Broccoli jalapeño poppers are keto-friendly and gluten-free, which makes them an easy option for some of the harder diets to adhere to.
Beanfields Bean Chips
You already know that broccoli is good for you, but did you know chips can be good for you, too? Beanfields chips are made from beans, which are full of important nutrients like fiber and protein. We wanted to make snacking healthier without sacrificing the taste of traditional snack foods. That’s why we made Beanfields. They give you all the flavor and crunch of your run of the mill chips while not harming your health.
You could technically make these broccoli jalapeño poppers with regular jalapeño potato chips, but you won’t get the health benefits of beans or the superior taste and quality of Beanfields’ ingredients.
