Pepper Poppers

Oh, I have it bad.  Really bad.  Hi.  My name is Shelby and I’m a Trader Joe’s addict.  I want to go there every single day and when I can’t, I have terrible withdrawal symptoms.  I am spoiled to the core.  Now that TJ’s is not far from where I work, I find myself migrating there during lunch break.  Grumpy told me I have a problem and I admit I do but you know what?  I don’t care!  TJ’s I love you. So much that I think Grumpy’s just a wee bit jealous.

I found this Sweet/Hot Pepper Jelly at TJ’s this last week.  I immediately knew it was going to make an appearance in my basket and then in my cupboard.  Today, it made an appearance on my plate as I decided it was time to try these Pepper Poppers out.  Oh yum.  Just the right amount of sweet heat.  I’m in heaven and I could eat every one of these peppers all by my lonesome.

Not only are these irresistible to my mouth, they are not bad calorie/points wise for my diet!  These are the perfect party bites to serve that will make everyone love you.  These are just 1 point per pepper, super easy to put together and as addicting as TJ’s.  :)

    I totally agree and I'm so sad my closest Trader Joe's is a half an hour away. But when I'm in the area you can bet I stock up!! They have such fun things to try and so affordable for things like nuts and seeds. We love their frozen orange chicken!
