Now, when I say making these delicious low-carb roasted jalapeno poppers is super easy, I mean it!

The first thing you’ll need to do is prep your jalapenos by cutting them lengthwise and removing the seeds and most of the white pith/membrane. Be sure you use gloves and don’t make the mistake of touching your face.

Contrary to popular belief, the heat comes from the membrane and not the seeds. So if you prefer less spicy keto jalapeno poppers then remove all of the membranes.

Once your jalapenos are prepped and ready you’ll prepare your filling. In a small bowl, you’ll combine the softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar, and Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles. 

Then you’ll fill each of the jalapeno halves with the cream cheese filling and wrap them up with the bacon. All that’s left is to pop them in the oven and wait for the bacon to cook and filling to melt and bubble.

My son isn’t very interested in cooking, he’s usually too busy playing to help. I’d love to change that though! Kelly Hubbard

Hope you can pull him into the kitchen soon. It's a life skill he will be happy to have in the future. The best way is to let him choose the recipe and be the one that takes the lead with you being there to supervise.

I loved this the first time I made it using brown sugar but tonight I made it with Stevia not realizing that the ratios are so different. A word to the wise, if using a substitute use a LOT less. We had to throw the whole thing away!

Hi Harold, There is no sweetener added to the bacon jalapeño poppers. You are correct in that a stevia substitute is twice as sweet so you would need to use half.
