Cream Cheese and bacon jalapeno poppers
The best part about the Keto diet is we can have high-fat Keto snacks packed with flavor, rather than bland fat-free foods.
Each week I like to make a savory fat bomb or dessert to incorporate into my meal plan to change it up. Following Keto doesn’t have to feel like a restricting diet there are so many flavorful Keto recipes you can try.

how to make Jalapeno poppers in the oven
First, you will want to cook your four pieces of bacon and shred 4 oz of cheddar cheese and preheat your oven to 350F. In the mean time , mix the cheddar cheese and cream cheese together. It might get a little messy but the best method is to just use your hands because the two cheeses are difficult to combine with a spoon.
Crumble or chop your four pieces of bacon and mix into the cheese mixture. I prefer adding th chopped bacon verse Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers, because the bacon usually comes all off with the first bite when you wrap it.
Now cut your jalapenos in half and remove the seeds and ribs. Then use a spoon to stuff the jalapeno halves with the bacon and cheese mixture, evenly distributing the filling between all 20 halves.
Finally, bake your jalapeno poppers in the over for 10 minutes.

I prefer to dip anything with cheese or bacon in ranch. I prefer either regular organic ranch or I have really been into Trader Joes Organic Sriracha Ranch, which is what you see in the pictures. Another good Keto friendly option is making your own ranch dressing. Here’s a good recipe to try.
