Low Carb Baked Jalapeno Poppers A simple, low carb version of our favorite creamy, spicy poppers!

Low Carb Baked Jalapeno Poppers is a simple, low carb version of our favorite creamy, spicy poppers!

I have made these Low Carb Baked Jalapeno Poppers twice this week. They are SO GOOD! My kids have informed me that they aren’t really poppers because they are not breaded and fried but I argue that they are two out of three parts of a popper (the best parts, I think!) so we will call it a baked jalapeno popper. We definitely agree that they are DELICIOUS. I made them twice this week because we are getting BUNCHES of peppers from the garden. It is actually the Hungarian Wax Peppers that are being so prolific, so I have not been making them with jalapenos lately. (Come on, Jalapenos!) The wax peppers are just a little bit spicy so if you are not a jalapeno/very spicy lover, they would be a great option for you.

Do use caution when cutting hot peppers! Wear gloves and do not touch your eyes or face after handling them. If you forget and touch something sensitive, you will immediately remember this good advice. 🙂
