Jalapeño Poppers

 

This is a very basic recipe for jalapeño poppers. Feel free to get creative by adding or substituting different types of cheeses, or anything else you may desire. You won’t go wrong flavor-wise adding a bit of sharp cheddar to this recipe, and the increase in protein is not significant enough to dramatically affect the keto-friendly macronutrient yield of this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 24 toothpicks
  • 12 jalapeños, halved and seeded
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 slices bacon

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Soak toothpicks in a bowl of water for a few minutes to prevent burning.
  3. Spoon cream cheese into each jalapeño, pressing it in evenly.
  4. Cut bacon into thirds, and wrap around each stuffed jalapeño; secure each with a soaked toothpick and place on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes until bacon is crispy and jalapeños are soft.
