These bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers are fast becoming my favorite party appetizer. After all, what’s better than bubbly cheese-stuffed jalapenos wrapped in crispy bacon? Perfect for holiday gatherings and game day parties, they are the perfect casual finger food – everyone will be circling back for more. They’re low-carb, keto-friendly, and gluten-free!
Get started by preheating your oven. Slice each jalapeño in half lengthwise and use a small spoon to scoop out the pith, membranes, and seeds. Discard.
Use a small spoon to scoop the cream cheese filling into each jalapeño half then wrap one strip of bacon around each half. If your jalapeños are on the larger side, you may need to wrap them with one-and-a-half slices of bacon.
Spray a large baking pan with nonstick cooking spray or line your baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange the prepared jalapeño poppers in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake.
Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before garnishing them with fresh chopped chives, if desired.
