  • 3 ounces chopped sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt



  • Position an oven rack in the higheset position and preheat your oven to broil on high.
  • Lightly spray a rimmed metal baking sheet (optional: foil before spraying for easier clean up) . Place jalapeños on pan and lighly spray with oil. Broil for 5 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally to char on all sides.
  • Use tongs to transfer the charred jalapeños to a small bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Steam for 6 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  • Peel off the charred jalapeño skin, slice open and remove seeds, ribs and discard. Roughly chop the jalapeno flesh.

  • Using a spatula to combine well. If overly sticky add a little more flour.
  • Once combined, turn the dough out onto a clean, generously floured surface. Divide the dough into fourths.
  • Working with one piece at a time, roll in extra flour and shape into the traditional bagel shape. Transfer to a parchment lined pan or platter. Repeat with remaining pieces of dough.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 330°. Once preheated generously spray your air fryer insert and add 2 of the bagels. Air fry for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Use a spatula to remove the bagels, the cheese likes to stick. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and repeat with remaining bagels.
