How To Make Air Fryer Jalapeño Poppers

Unlike stuffing and breading the traditional deep fried version, making these air fryer Jalapeño Poppers is a breeze.

Here’s how to make the perfect bacon wrapped Jalapeño Poppers that are super simple to make, but taste just as delicious as the high carb version:

To Prep The Stuffed Jalapeños

  1. Using disposable gloves, carefully cut jalapeños lengthwise from the stem to the tip of the pepper.
  2. Use the back of a spoon to carefully remove all of the seeds from the jalapeños
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese and cheddar cheese.
  4. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the body of the peppers until it is level with the top of the halved pepper
  5. Wrap a strip of bacon around the cream cheese stuffed jalapeño, ensuring the ends of the strip of bacon are on the underside of the pepper.

How To Air Fry Your Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

  1. Place the stuffed peppers directly into your air fryer basket
  2. Set your air fryer to 325F
  3. Cook without flipping or turning for 12 minutes or until the cream cheese is bubbly and the bacon is cooked to your desired doneness

Can You Make Keto Jalapeño Poppers In The Oven?

If you haven’t purchased an air fryer yet (or are using it to make another one of our amazing air fryer recipes) you can still make these yummy stuffed jalapeños in your oven!

Here’s how:

  1. Prepare the stuffed peppers according to the air fryer instructions listed above.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  3. Place Jalapeño Poppers on a baking sheet and place them in the oven.
  4. Bake for 22-24 minutes or until bacon is cooked completely and the cheese is bubbly.

Tips And Tricks

While this is a incredibly simple recipe, here are few tips and tricks that can make you love it even more:

  • Use thin-cut bacon. This will ensure your bacon gets crispy without charring your peppers.
  • Grab a toothpick. If you’re having trouble getting the bacon to stay in place when wrapping, simply place a toothpick through the bacon. Just remember to remove it before serving.
  • Make it Vegetarian. Trying to maintain a meat-free lifestyle? Skip the bacon and cook as instructed.
  • Chop It Up. Want to keep your hands clean? Skip wrapping the jalapeños with bacon and chop it up into fine pieces instead. Sprinkle the small pieces of bacon on top of the cream cheese and cook as directed.
