  • 12 fresh jalapeño peppers, halved lengthwise and seeds removed 🌶️
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 🧀
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 12 slices bacon, cut in half


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  2. Prepare Jalapeños:
  • Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes. Wear gloves or wash your hands thoroughly afterward, as jalapeños can be spicy, and handling them can transfer the heat.
  1. Prepare Filling:
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, shredded cheddar, grated Parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, ground cumin, salt, and black pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  1. Stuff Jalapeños:
  • Spoon the cheese mixture evenly into each jalapeño half, ensuring they are well-filled.
  1. Wrap with Bacon:
  • Wrap each stuffed jalapeño with a half-slice of bacon, securing the ends with toothpicks if needed.
  1. Bake to Perfection:
  • Place the bacon-wrapped jalapeños on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Broil for Crispy Bacon (Optional):
  • If you desire extra crispiness, broil the poppers for an additional 2-3 minutes under the broiler, keeping a close eye to prevent burning.
  1. Cool and Serve:
  • Allow the Low-Carb Jalapeño Poppers to cool slightly before serving. Remove toothpicks if used.
  1. Serve and Enjoy:
  • Serve these delightful poppers on a platter with your favorite low-carb dipping sauce, and enjoy the spicy, cheesy goodness!

These Low-Carb Jalapeño Poppers combine the heat of jalapeños with the creamy richness of cheese. These poppers, whether served as appetizers or party treats, are sure to be popular among spice enthusiasts. Enjoy the bold flavors without compromising your low-carb lifestyle. 🌶️🧀✨.
