These Keto Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers are the perfect low carb appetizer recipe! Cream cheese and smoked cheddar stuffed jalapenos – wrapped in bacon – create the ultimate party appetizer or tailgate snack with 1.5 net carbs. 


8 Jalapenos – Halved

8 Ounces Cream Cheese (softened)

12 Slices Bacon or Turkey Bacon 

1 Cup Smoked Cheddar Cheese – Grated 


To Bake:

  1. Preheat Oven to 400
  2. Cut jalapenos in half & remove seeds.
  3. Combine cream cheese and grated smoked cheddar.
  4. Using a spoon, fill each jalapeno with cheese stuffing.
  5. Wrap each with bacon – starting with the fattiest end and roll until jalapeno is wrapped
  6. Bake for 20-25 Minutes 

For the Grill – 1 Hour

For best results, let poppers chill in the refrigerator for an hour before grilling 

  • Heat grill to 275 – 300
  • Start with the cream cheese side down. You can use a skillet like this one or you can put the jalapenos directly on the grill (watch out for flare-ups when the cheese begins to melt!) 
  • Grill for 1 hour 

Air Fryer – 20 Minutes 

For best results, let poppers chill in the refrigerator for an hour before air frying 

  • Set Air Fryer to 325 
  • Spray basket with oil
  • Place poppers in basket – try not to overlap
  • Set timer for 12 minutes
  • After 12 minutes do a quick check-in to see how poppers are progressing (cooking times will vary due to brand of the fryer) 
  • Cook for 8 more minutes
