Jalapeno Poppers with Cream Cheese
Back in my twenties I remember making fun of one of my friends who submitted a recipe for a cookbook because it only had three ingredients. It was his grandmothers lemonade recipe and it tasted absolutely amazing! And here I am sharing an incredible keto snack that only has three ingredients, Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers.
With lemonade, it’s imperative to get the right amount of each ingredient to get the perfect taste. With bacon wrapped jalapeno’s, it’s kind of hard to go wrong as long as you combine the three ingredients.
You’ll need Jalapeno’s, Cream Cheese and Bacon.
If you know me, you know each was added to my Trader Joe’s Shopping list. You can find my Trader Joe’s Keto Grocery Haul on my blog.
How To Make Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
- Wash the outside of Jalapenos.
2. Slice Jalapeno in half the long way and remove seeds from Jalapenos.
3. Fill each of the jalepeno halves with cream cheese.
*I mixed cream cheese and sharp cheddar cheese to four of the poppers just to see what it would taste like. They made for a great Keto snack, but the difference in taste was very minimal. …but definitely good!
4. Wrap each jalapeno half in bacon.
5. Place on baking pan.
6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
7. Baking time is 30-45 minutes, depending on the thickness of the bacon.
You can also grill or smoke them – and I’m telling you, they are incredible on the grill and smoked!
8. Serve Warm
The Best Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers Ever
A while back I wrote a blog post called Eating Keto at 4 Rivers Smokehouse and I shared some menu items that are keto friendly. When I go to 4 Rivers Smokehouse I ALWAYS get the Jalapeno Poppers there. They are seriously the BEST I’ve ever had.
They smoke their poppers. And if you can imagine how incredible the smoked bacon, jalapeno and cream cheese are when they are combined with a slow smoked cooking process.
Mine look better than 4 Rivers Smokehouse, but I’ve yet to master that smokey taste!
If you do not want to make your own bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, you should definitely try 4 Rivers!
