Cooking Keto Jalapeno Poppers

These jalapeno poppers can be cooked in the oven or on a grill. If using a grill cook on indirect heat for an hour.

Keto jalapeno poppers have a long cooking time. The longer you cook the poppers, the less spicy they will be. You can take them out sooner, but they might be a little too spicy for some of your guests to enjoy.

Can I Prep This Recipe Ahead Of Time?

You can prep these keto jalapeno poppers up to three days ahead of time. Store them in the refrigerator until you plan to cook them. When you want to cook the poppers, place them on the baking sheet and bake according to the instructions above.

Lil’t Smokies On The Keto Diet

Lit’l Smokies brand has corn syrup, dextrose, and MSG on their ingredients label. They aren’t the cleanest of keto foods. For 5 sausage links there are 2 grams of carbohydrates. There are some brands that don’t contain sugars or MSG. Check out Whole Foods or the organic/natural food section in the grocery store.

Adjust The Level Of Heat From The Jalapeno

If you find the jalapeno peppers to be too spicy, make sure you are removing all the ribs and seeds. This is where the heat is in the jalapeno pepper. You can also cook the keto jalapeno poppers longer to decrease the spiciness of the pepper.

Another option is to use an anaheim chili pepper instead. Anaheim peppers have a Scoville rating of 500-1000 (which is mild). Jalapeno peppers have a Scoville rating of 2500-8000.
