Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers are ultra cheesy & spicy- they make the ultimate perfect appetizer for any occasion, they are also LOW CARB and KETO friendly!
These are a huge hit at any party or Holiday get together- you want an appetizer that everyone is going to love? this is it my foodie friends!
There were so many amazing reviews when we made these, we ended up trying a few different methods to see what we liked best- and these were our favorite. Others we tried that also tasted awesome were: We taste tested several cream cheese flavors, I also really loved chive cream cheese. We tried another using some powdered ranch mixed in which were also SO good!
Simple yet low carb, keto diet friendly and filled with protein from the bacon and the cheese
– low carb and keto doesnt have to be bland and boring!
I know a lot of you might still not have an air fryer, I have a few friends that are still toying with the idea of investing in an air fryer for a while, but they were worried that they wouldn’t have enough recipes to justify buying one. Here’s another great recipe to add to your list , I have a couple more here on my site and more coming soon too! Stay Tuned!
I also have found that if you want them hot, leave all of the membrane inside and some seeds– if you don’t want to remove all of the ‘heat’ from the poppers.
Trust me foodie friends, you want to get an air fryer ASAP if you dont have one yet- just buying it for the french fries is worth it lol 😉
A lower calorie version is use fat free cream cheese and wrap each 1/2 popper with only 1/2 slice of bacon 🙂
They have fresh bold flavors, but are still ridiculously easy to make because it is air fried! It can be baked as well.
