Keto Fried Bacon Jalapeño Poppers Cheese Bites



For the filling

  • 16oz Cream Cheese (or Neufchâtel cheese)
  • 10 oz Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
  • 12 oz Bacon, fried to your liking and set aside
  • 6-8 large Fresh Jalapeno Peppers –  blanched, seeded and chopped.
  • OR – 1/2 cup Canned Jalapeno Poppers, chopped and seeded.
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Optional: 100g Onions, caramelized (optional – I like it with onions!)
  • Oil for Frying

For Dredging

  • 1– 2 cups of Crushed Pork Rinds (you can make your own with a food processor – I use a 4oz bag of pork rinds and it’s usually enough)
  • 3 eggs, whisked


  1. Blanching Fresh Jalapeno Peppers:
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a Boil and have a large bowl of ice water ready on the side. Let the jalapeños boil for 5-10 minutes (or until tender) and then quickly add them to the ice bath. This stops them from cooking. You can skip this step and use canned jalapenos instead.
  3. Caramelizing Onions (optional)
  4. Add 1 tbsp of oil (or bacon fat) to pan on medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until they’re golden brown. Add to cream cheese mixture.
