Jalapeno Poppers

On doctor’s orders, I started the Atkins diet. It’s been good and encouraging. I’ve lost about 25 lbs. It’s a start but there is a long road ahead. One day at a time.

I love cooking but modifying dishes haven’t been easy. This appetizer is very tasty and I’ve made it before Atkins and it’s what I call, Atkins friendly.

Don’t worry. I’ll be making all types of recipes, but if it’s “Atkins friendly” I’ll let you all know.


Jalapeno peppers
Cream cheese


Helpful hints: Remember you can use small sweet peppers if you don’t like hot peppers. If you remove “all” of the seeds it won’t be very at all.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. No matter what you’re cooking, remember to have fun in the kitchen.

  1. you are so cute! I loved this and they look amazing!!!:)

  2. Hi Nadine. I come via Ileana's blog. I seen something on her sidebar that said jalapenos and I just had to come and have a looksee. Love it. I do love jalapenos and this is a great recipe. I've never made poppers with bacon. I will definitely try it. I just posted a YouTube video about Tomato Pie that I am going to make tomorrow. I like your blog and am definitely adding you to my list. take care.

  3. You are so cute and you get more and more comfortable in front of the camera. I am so with you on the Atkins diet. I need it too. I hope you will post more Atkins type recipes along with your other recipes. I did Atkins years ago after I had my son and lost 30 lbs pretty quickly so I know it works. I am looking forward to more recipes but for today I am going to the store to get the ingredients to make your poppers....I am sure they will taste as good as they look lol!
