I have made jalepeno poppers for a party before. it was easy and they came out REALLY good.

you need:
Fresh jalapenos (the smaller they are the hotter they tend to be... so i pick the biggest ones from the store)
Cream cheese, not softened (I use fat free for my WOE, but use whatever you want)

1. Oven to 350
2. cut jalapenos in half length wise (the hot dog way!)
3. scoop out the seeds with a spoon and discard
4. if the jalapenos are long, cut them in half again the other way (hamburger way!)
5. add a scoop of cream cheese into each piece of jalapeno
6. secure with toothpick on cookie tray lined with tin foil
7. wrap each piece in bacon (I was able to use half a strip to wrap around)
8. put in oven until the bacon is cooked to your liking

the rest of these are on my list to try for upcoming events (these are not my own creations )

Portabella mushroom pizza

* 1 piece whole raw Portabella mushroom
* 2 Tbsp pizza sauce
* ¼ cup shredded non-fat mozzarella
* 1 oz turkey bacon
* ½ cup raw spinach
1. Scrape the gills out of a large Portabella mushroom and bake at 425° for 10 minutes to remove moisture.
2. Remove mushroom,from oven, blot dry with a paper towel, and spoon pizza sauce onto the mushroom.
3. Chop 1/2 cup of spinach (or any dark green leafy vegetable) and place on top of pizza sauce.
4. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese.
5. Crumble turkey bacon on top.
6. Bake for an additional 10 minutes and serve.

this is for 1 serving, but you could probably make them bite size with smaller mushrooms.

according to the above amounts the nutrition info is:
189 calories and 6 net carbs

with might vary depending on your pizza sauce though

apple stuffed mushroom caps

* 18 large fresh white mushrooms
* 3 medium stalk(s) (7-1/2" - 8" long) raw celery
* 1 Tbsp Smart Balance® Light Butter
* ½ cup chopped apple, peeled
* 2 Tbsp bread crumbs
* 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
* 1 Tbsp crumbled blue cheese
* 1 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
* 2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

1. Cut stems from mushrooms and set caps aside.
2. Finely chop mushroom stems (about 1/3 cup) and celery then add to frying pan.
3. Cook chopped mushroom stems and celery in Smart Balance®; Light butter over medium heat until soft.
4. In a bowl, add the cooked mushroom and celery to chopped apples, breadcrumbs, walnuts, blue cheese, parsley, and lemon juice. Stir until ingredients are incorporated.
5. Arrange mushroom caps on a greased baking sheet and spoon mixture into caps.
6. Bake at 375 F for 15 to 20 minutes or until mushrooms are just tender.

Serving size: 3 pieces
62 calories
5 net carbs

I will probably exclude the breadcrumbs

Mushrooms just tend to seem like good finger food for me. :-)

i have made simpler stuffed mushrooms with mushroom caps, cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and garlic salt. 450 deg for 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender.

Best of luck!

Have you tried jalapeno popper dip?

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened (light works great)
1 c. mayonnaise (light also works here, but DON'T use Miracle Whip!)
1 c. Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
1 4-oz. can fire roasted green chilies
1/2-1 4-oz. can diced jalapeno peppers*, drained
optional: 8oz bacon, cooked and crumbled

*1/2 can is mild with a little bite, a whole can is definitely on the spicy side, but if you've got taste buds of steel, you might prefer a 7-oz. can. 4 ounces definitely pushes the limit for my husband and I and our kids won't touch it.

Preheat oven to 350. If using bacon, reserve 2-3 Tbs and sprinkle on top of dip before baking. Combine cream cheese, mayo, parmesan, and garlic and stir until smooth. Add jalapenons and green chilies. If using bacon, stir in remaining bacon. Spread dip into a 9" pie plate or a small baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon if using. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until dip is bubbly and golden brown.

Here's another one.

8 oz cream cheese
1 pack onion soup mix
4 oz shredded monterey jack cheese

Mexican chicken dip is also pretty good:

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cayenne powder
2 cups shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Grill, boil or bake the chicken at 375 F for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature is 170 F. Chop the chicken and place in a food processor with the cream cheese, sour cream, cumin, paprika, and cayenne. Blend until incorporated well. Spread in a casserole dish and top with the shredded lettuce and cheese.

This was Dottie's idea but I can't find the post

Dottie's idea.

Jalapeno Peepers

I took the pickled jalapenos (the firmest and largest in the jar)
Wearing gloves I split them open carefully and don't go all the
way through. De-seeded them and patted dry.
Placed them on a foil lined broiler pan and stuffed them with
cream cheese, topped off with Tillamook cheddar cheese.
Broiled until cheese just melted. I cut up the carrots and onions from jar,
and topped each one with that as garnish.
