1/4th of recipe (2 pockets): 88 calories, 3g total fat (2g sat fat), 243mg sodium, 12.5g carbs, 1g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 2.5g protein

Blue Plan (Freestyle) SmartPoints® value 3*

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

3/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup light/reduced-fat cream cheese

1/4 cup jarred jalapeño peppers, drained and roughly chopped

8 small square wonton wrappers (stocked with the tofu in the refrigerated section of the supermarket)

 

Seasonings: 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/8 tsp. onion powder

Directions:

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion until softened and browned, about 5 minutes.

Transfer onion to a medium bowl. Add cream cheese, jalapeño peppers, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix until uniform.

Lay one wonton wrapper flat on a clean, dry surface. Spoon 1/8th of the filling (about 1 1/2 tbsp. filling) into the center. Moisten the wrapper edges with water. Fold the bottom left corner to meet the top right corner, forming a triangle and enclosing the filling. Press firmly on the edges to seal.

Repeat to make 7 more pockets. Spray with nonstick spray.

Place a single layer of the pockets in the air fryer cooking basket. Set air fryer to 392 degrees. Cook until golden brown, 3 - 4 minutes.

Repeat with remaining pockets.
