Here are a few things you need to know about this recipe.  Since I’ve started my Ketogenic Diet, I am very picky about the bacon I use.  I make sure the bacon has no sugar added.  The process photos I took below were from way before I was Keto.  Just make a note of that.  Nowadays my go-to brand for bacon tends to be the Applegate Farms No Sugar added Natural bacon.  You will have to look to see what brand your store offers.  While doing Keto we are always watching the food labels very carefully.

Another thing to note on this recipe is the type of cream cheese I used.  You don’t need to have a flavored cream cheese.  You can use plain cream cheese too.  I always mix some shredded cheese with the cream cheese if I use the plain kind.  Either way, both taste great!

Lastly,  I feel the need to tell you that if you are not used to working with jalapenos you should probably wear some disposable gloves.  The juices that get on your hands can sometimes burn and you certainly don’t want to rub your eyes either.  I don’t wear gloves when I slice the jalapenos in half but I am careful not the touch the inside too much either.  I slice the longways and I use a spoon to scoop out all of the inside seeds.  Believe it or not, when you remove the seeds it tends to remove most of the spicy parts of the jalapeno.  My family is not big on spicy foods so I will hear about it if I accidently leave some seeds in there.

 

Easy Jalapeno Cream Cheese Poppers Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1 8 oz container of Cream Cheese (I used the Chive Onion)
  • Thick Cut Bacon

Easy Jalapeno Cream Cheese Poppers Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the jalapenos in half longways and use a spoon to remove the seeds.
  3. Scoop a spoonful of the flavored Cream Cheese into each half of the sliced jalapeno.
  4. Wrap it in bacon (raw). If they don’t stay wrapped you can use a toothpick to hold it together but be sure you soak the toothpicks in water before baking them to prevent them from burning.
  5. Bake them long enough for the jalapeno pepper to be tender and the bacon to be crisp. This could be between 25 to 40 minutes depending on your pan.
