Keto Loaded Bacon Jalapeños

Intro - Grocery List - Directions - Macronutrients - Leftovers and Meal Prep

Adapting your favorite recipes to fit a keto diet does not have to be difficult. In fact, some recipes are naturally close to being keto and need only slight modifications to meet your keto macros.

These loaded keto jalapeño peppers are a fun, easy to make dish that incorporates smooth cream cheese that balances the spice of the pepper, and bacon to add a savory flavor. On top of that, these peppers provide enough fat and protein to make a hearty snack or side to a meal to keep you full for longer.

If you want to try a variant of this recipe because you can’t handle the spice of the jalapenos, try using other peppers like small sweet peppers instead.

Stuffed jalapeño peppers are also a popular dish to prepare for parties or other events. This can allow for people to try keto foods if they are interested. Bringing you own dish guarantees that you’ll have a keto-friendly option available to eat throughout the event.

They will definitely be an easy to make party favorite as these loaded jalapeños are very simple using only three ingredients, a few knife skills, and some time for baking.

Grocery List

Here are the ingredients needed for keto loaded bacon jalapenos. This recipe makes 2 servings.

  • 3 Jalapeño Peppers
  • 6 tbsp Cream Cheese
  • 6 slices of Center Cut Bacon


Your kitchen will require the following:

  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Baking sheet
  • Spoon
  • Gloves (if desired)
  • Parchment paper (if desired)


To make this stuffed pepper recipe, you’re going to cut and stuff the jalapeños, wrap them in bacon, and bake them until cooked thoroughly.

  1. Begin with preheating the oven to 375F
  2. While oven is preheating wash jalapeños, then cut the peppers in half.
  3. Remove seeds from the peppers using a spoon or your hands, and also remove stems and membranes (the white interior of the pepper). When handling peppers, be careful not to touch your face or eyes to reduce risk of burning eyes. For added safety, remove seeds with a spoon and/or handle jalapeno peppers while wearing gloves. If using bare hands, rub olive or vegetable oil onto hands, then wash hands with oil or grease-removing dish liquid.
  4. Place each pepper half on a baking sheet (line with parchment paper for easier clean-up), and fill each pepper with cream cheese. This recipe calls for adding 1 tbsp of cream cheese to each pepper half, but you can add as much or little as desired.
  5. Once all 6 jalapeño pepper halves are filled with cream cheese, take the bacon and wrap once slice around each pepper so that the entire pepper is covered.
  6. Bake stuffed peppers for 20-25 minutes or until bacon is cooked thoroughly
  7. Allow peppers to cool for 3-5 minutes before enjoying. These peppers can be enjoyed alone, or with another keto-friendly side/snack recipe

Leftovers and Meal Prep

If eating as a side, this recipe makes 2 servings (3 jalapeño pepper halves) to use for lunch, dinner, or as part of a snack. It’s recommended to eat these immediately after making, but can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days. Storing these stuffed peppers for longer may cause for the peppers to lose some of their crunch.

This recipe can be made in large batches and works well for large groups of people. If making these for a large group of people, the peppers can be stuffed and wrapped ahead of time. For optimal taste, try to make them the day of the event.
