In my opinion, jalapeno poppers are one of the most versatile keto foods out there. Think about it, they are the perfect appetizer to delight ketoers and non-ketoers alike (you can now keep your keto game on game day like a boss!), they make a perfectly tasty and filling lunch, and they are a scrumptious snack anytime you need something a little crunchy, a little cheesy, a little spicy, and a little bacon-y which, lets be real, is ALWAYS.
Makes: 12 servings
12 slices of bacon
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 tsp onion powder
Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, and onion powder in a bowl and mix well.
Slice jalapenos in half, removing the veins for a milder taste.
Stuff each half with the cheese mixture, then wrap with bacon.
Place bacon wrapped jalapenos on a cookie sheet and bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 15 minutes, then broil on high for 4-5 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
