If baked jalapeno poppers are one of your go-to appetizers, get ready for your new favorite version of them. We stuff them with a mixture of two cheeses, wrap them in bacon, toss them in the oven, and call it a day.

These cheese stuffed bacon jalapeno poppers will blow your mind! They’re incredibly easy to make, plus YOU control how how and spicy you want them. If you’re worried about the spicy heat level, these do have a kick, but their flavor is mellowed after being roasted, and tempered by the creaminess of the cheese.

Pro Tip: If you like a little more heat keep some seeds in the jalapeno peppers. If you don’t like spicy foods or if kids will be eating these, make sure to remove all of the seeds completely.

OR If you don’t like any spice/heat level to your food, you could always substitute small sweet bell peppers instead. Depending on their size, you may want to cut your bacon slices in half if you do that.

These would be perfect to serve up at any party (you can easily make a double batch!). These are perfect for your next tailgating party, football sunday or even New Year’s Eve!

Whip these keto jalapeno poppers up along with our Summer Sausage Cucumber Bites with Cream Cheese Mousse; put together a cheese, meat, and olive tray; and slice up celery, bell pepper, cauliflower, and broccoli for a full keto party spread!

JALAPENO POPPER RECIPE INGREDIENTS 

We keep this low carb jalapeno popper recipe super easy with minimal ingredients. Feel free to add and subtract ingredients as you want though!

  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • Bacon
  • Avocado oil spray

HOW TO MAKE JALAPENO POPPERS

First, Preheat the oven to 400F. Next, cut a thin slit down the length of each pepper and carefully remove the inner ribs and seeds, trying to keep the pepper itself as intact as possible. 

Then use a fork to mash together the cheddar and cream cheeses in a small bowl. After that, stuff the cheese mixture into each pepper, closing each pepper up as much as possible.

Next, wrap a slice of bacon around the outside of each pepper, securing with a toothpick if necessary. Then, lightly spray each popper with avocado oil. 

Finally, arrange the poppers on a large baking sheet and bake until the bacon is crispy, about 20 minutes.

Pro Tip: You can broil the poppers for a couple minutes at the end if you want to brown them more.
