Keto/Low Carb Jalapeno Poppers

These went fast… my oldest and hubby liked them best.

For a recent Saturday night dinner in, we enjoyed an appetizer that kept us all happy with the flavor… and me low-carb! To be honest I saw them at Target (for over $10!) and was inspired to make my own. (For less than half the price). I cheated and used their directions. 😉

Three ingredients and amazing flavor… can’t beat it!

Ingredients and directions:

4 Lg jalapeno peppers, seeded and sliced in half lengthwise

8 pieces thin bacon

8 Tbps cream cheese

Preheat oven to 425. Stuff the peppers with a Tbsp of cream cheese each or however much you can get in there!

Wrap each stuffed pepper with a slice of bacon.

Place on greased or parchment-lined baking sheet cheese side down (that’s important).

Ready for the oven!

Bake for 15 minutes. Turn over to cheese side up. Bake another 15-18 minutes.

Turned over halfway through cooking so the cheese is on top and doesn’t melt out.

The peppers were done perfectly. The cheese stayed in for the most part. The bacon was just crispy enough.

They went quick!!! Could experiment by using flavored cream cheese and different peppers (such as mini sweets or poblanos for less heat).

Highly recommend!!!
