Jalepeno Poppers

Keto Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Poppers

Ready for an addictive snack? These Keto Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Poppers will have you chowing down and not wanting to share … but this recipe makes 24, so I do recommend you share!

What makes these spicy? Jalapeños, obviously. What makes these sweet? Swerve Brown, a brown sugar substitute that has zero calories and zero net carbs and doesn’t impact blood sugar levels. It’s a keto-friendly sweetener that tastes and bakes like regular sugar and has no aftertaste.

I love these poppers for entertaining or just for a Friday night snack with the family while binge-watching some TV shows on Netflix. These, a bag of popcorn, and some chicken wings make for an excellent assortment of TV-watching snacks!
