I served a platter of these at a party the other week. They vanished in 5 mins!


Jalapeño poppers are a tantalizing treat, especially for those following a low-carb diet. The primary ingredients, jalapeño peppers and melted cheese, fit perfectly into a low-carb lifestyle. However, traditional recipes often include breadcrumbs or batter, which can be a carb concern. That's where our unique recipe shines, offering a delightful twist that maintains the low-carb ethos.

We've creatively substituted breadcrumbs with crushed pork rinds, which not only align with a low-carb diet but also infuse an irresistible smokiness and satisfying crunch to the dish. Imagine enjoying this mouth-watering, low-carb version of your favorite bar snack in the comfort of your home.

Here's the recipe for these low-carb Jalapeño Poppers:


8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon lard, melted

12 large jalapeño peppers, halved and deseeded

1 cup crushed pork rinds


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, blend the cream cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and cheddar cheese.

Brush each jalapeño half with melted lard.

Fill the jalapeños with the cheese mixture.

Roll the stuffed jalapeños in crushed pork rinds for a crunchy coating.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until they turn golden-brown and bubbly.

These low-carb Jalapeño Poppers are perfect for anyone seeking to indulge in a delicious snack without straying from their dietary preferences. Enjoy!
