Easy Jalapeño Poppers
• 8 medium-sized jalapenos
• 4 ounces (1/4 pound) Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
• 8 slices of bacon
• 8 short wooden skewers or wooden toothpicks
• 1 packet Tostitos Dip Creations Freshly Made Guacamole
prepared according to instructions
• 3 avocados (for guacamole)
Create a slit in one side of the jalapenos using a small, sharp knife. Do not cut all the way through the ends. Remove the seeds and membrane for a milder popper. Stuff a pepper with 1/8 of the cheese. Wrap with a slice of bacon and secure the bacon with a skewer
or toothpick. Repeat with the remaining peppers.
Preheat oven to 425° F. Sear poppers on all sides over high heat in a nonstick pan until bacon is golden brown. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Serve hot with the guacamole on the side.

The term “vegetarian” encompasses a variety of philosophies about food. Many vegetarians eschew meat for ethical, environmental or dietary reasons. Some simply find plant-based foods more pleasing to their palates, while others prepare meatless meals as a way to trim their grocery bills. October is Vegetarian Month—a time to celebrate the variety of approaches for including more vegetables, fruits, grains, legumes and nuts in our diets.
Here are some types of vegetarians:
Total vegetarians eat only plant-based foods.
Vegans eat only plant-based foods and avoid using any products that come from animals, such as leather.
Lacto vegetarians avoid meat but consume dairy products.
Lacto-ovo vegetarians eat dairy products and eggs.
Pesco vegetarians include fish in their diets.
Pollo vegetarians consume poultry.
“Flexitarians” eat mostly plants but occasionally consume dairy, eggs, fish, poultry and red meat. Registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner, author of “The Flexitarian Diet,” says people who eat mostly vegetarian diets “weigh 15 percent less, have a lower
rate of heart disease, diabetes and cancer and live 3.6 years longer than their carnivorous counterparts.”
Whether you’re vegetarian all the way or can’t bear to give up bacon, consider the many ways you can enjoy nutritious, delicious plant-based foods.
