Jalapeno Poppers for the win…

Today, I was looking for something quick, easy, gluten-free and low-carb to eat. I stopped at a ¬†nearby produce market and walked up on some huge jalapeno peppers on sale for $0.88/pound and immediately thought of, “poppers.”

These little cheese filled peppers have become a staple in my household at family gatherings and Monday night TV and with only 5 ingredients it comes in at under $5.00 to prepare.


6 Large Jalapeno Peppers halved with seeds removed

8 oz Softened Cream Cheese

4 oz Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Green Onion

Garlic Powder (season to taste)
