BACON WRAPPED JALAPEÑO PEPPERS STUFFED WITH CREAM CHEESE

You’ll love these bacon wrapped jalapeño peppers stuffed with cream cheese and shredded cheddar. Similar to jalapeño poppers except that these are low-carb, keto, and baked in the oven.


You just only need five ingredients to make this easy and fun party appetizer. I’ve been making these bacon wrapped jalapeño peppers for the past few years and they are always a winner.

If you can’t tolerate chili peppers at all but you still want to try these out, I recommend using mini sweet bell peppers instead of jalapeños. You might have seen them in the produce section of your grocery store — they usually come in clear packaging with various colors and are about the same size as a jalapeño.


Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Peppers Stuffed with Cream Cheese
You’ll love these bacon wrapped jalapeño peppers stuffed with cream cheese and shredded cheddar. Similar to jalapeño poppers except that these are low-carb and baked in the oven.


Ingredients

  • 6 jalapeño peppers (about 8 ounces) sliced lengthwise in half with seeds and membranes removed
  • 6 slices bacon cut widthwise in half
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Add cream cheese to a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave until slightly softened, about 15 seconds. Add cheddar cheese and garlic powder. Mix until combined.
  2. Stuff each pepper half with the cream cheese mixture. Wrap a halved bacon slice around each pepper. Secure with a toothpick as needed.
  3. Place the stuffed peppers in a single layer onto a baking tray.
  4. Bake at 400 F until the cheese is starting to brown, about 20 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil for a few minutes to crisp up the bacon. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
