Low-carb Jalapeno Poppers

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by jovigirl

These are really good and surprisingly mild. When on a low-carb diet they add some zip to some sometimes bland meals.

These are "HOT" (fantastic)! No need for any other popper recipe! Your search stops here! I actually just used some chopped onion since I didn't have scallions. These are so good! We even mixed some leftovers into our scrambled eggs the next morning. Thanks for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Split jalepeno pepper down the side, but keep the stem in tact (wear gloves).
  3. With your thumb or a teaspoon, scrape out the seeds and membrane leaving a pocket in which to stuff. Blend cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onion, and garlic powder. Stuff each pepper with the cheese mixture and place on a sprayed baking sheet and top with a sprinkle of paprika.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the peppers are softened and cheese is melted. Let sit a few minutes for the cheese to set up before eating.
