Jalapeño Poppers – Keto Style!

Appetizers, Party Food, Snacks
featured image

I have never been a fan of Jalapeño Poppers… until now!  After reading through several recipes for Jalapeño Poppers on the internet, I came up with my own keto version that would be great for an appetizer or a party food that is quite tasty!

I started off with 12 jalapeño peppers, which I cut the stems from, then sliced lengthwise.  I took a 1/4 teaspoon and scraped out the seeds from inside each half, then discarded the stems & seeds in the compost.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Wash your hands thoroughly with soap & water after handling jalapeño peppers.  I made the mistake of touching my eyelid with a finger that I thought hadn’t touched the peppers… my eye burned for hours.

After the peppers were cut, it was time to mix up the filling!  I softened the cream cheese, added the salt, pepper, garlic, seasoning, cheddar cheese, & bacon and stirred it up.

 

Once the cream cheese mixture is fully combined, I spooned it into the pepper halves and popped them onto a baking sheet.

 

I baked them for 20 minutes, once the filling was melty & bubbly, then sprinkled with more crumbled bacon.

Once they cooled enough to eat, I almost couldn’t stop eating them!
