Keto Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers
Like most people, adapting to a keto diet led to some changes in my food preferences and sense of taste. I never hated spicy food, but the switch to keto definitely gave me a greater appreciation for it. The vast majority of pepper varieties out there are keto friendly, and even if you don’t opt for a spicy variety, they tend to pack a lot of flavor for the few carbs they have.
Best of all, they are the perfect vessel for any number of yummy creamy, cheesy, and/or meaty fillings you can think of. This keto stuffed jalapeno recipe uses a cheese and chicken based mixture to make a delicious buffalo chicken flavored filling. They are perfect as a snack, side, or even as party food for your next get together.
- You can cut back on the spice by using a milder pepper, like mini sweet bell peppers.
- Many keto jalapeno popper recipes are bacon wrapped. I like to just use the bacon in the filling instead since it’s quicker (and less hassle to get crispy!)
- Make sure to check carb counts on your hot sauce, ranch, or blue cheese dressing; many have hidden sugars added.
