Love jalapeno poppers?

You’ve gotta try making these EASY cream cheese and bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers in your air fryer using just 3 ingredients! It’s seriously one of my favorite appetizers, and they happen to be low carb and keto-friendly, too! Yippee!

Hip Tip: Do yourself a favor and wear kitchen gloves while scooping out jalapeno seeds! If you’ve ever cleaned and chopped jalapenos then accidentally touched your eyes afterward, you’ll understand – it’s no fun!

I’ve been making these cream cheese filled poppers for years and truly LOVE them.

They’re always the first appetizer to disappear at family gatherings. Making them in the air fryer is such a quick, easy and convenient method – plus they taste incredible! But then, bacon by itself in the air fryer is amazing too. #BecauseBacon

You can also make these in your regular oven (or on the BBQ grill). Add fresh herbs, garlic, or green onions to your cream cheese to change up the flavors.

      Thanks you I lost on Keto 20 lb for three months.Please keep posting a new recipe!

      • Lina D

        Congrats Gina!

  2. keesh

    Looks yummy

  3. Christine

    May be a silly question…. But does the cream cheese leak out when cookin?
    I would have to grill these?

    • Lina D

      In the air fryer – mine did not. I would be sure not to overfill and if using grill, may be smart to use toothpicks, soaked in water first, to keep it all together.

      • Christine

        Thank u Lina🌶
        I don’t own an air fryer

        I think this would be good with baby portables mushrooms too

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      No, b/c of the shape of the jalapeno the cream cheese is cradled in there pretty well. Just don’t overfill them and they’ll be fine.

      We don’t eat pork so I stuff my jalapenos w/ a mixture of ground beef (cooked w/ Penzey’s taco seasoning) + cream cheese, topped w/ some shredded pepper jack cheese, and baked at 400 for about 15-20 min. I sprinkle them w/ green onions before serving and they’re always a hit!

    • Bob

      Not over filling the peppers it is not bad, I wrap bacon tight around which helps. I mix hot n spucy shreaded cheese with cream cheese it gives poppers a smoky flavor. Good luck

  4. sldarling10

    Any suggestions for a substitute for the Jalepenos that isn’t very spicy? These look so good and sound so easy but I can’t handle the slightest of spiciness! Thanks 🙂

    • Lina D

      Maybe those mini bell peppers?

    • Karen

      It’s the seeds that really make them spicy, without those it isn’t too bad. I can’t handle slickness right but I rinse and pay dry the jalapeños and I’m good to go 😀

    • sldarling10

      Thank you Lina and Karen! I think I will make a batch trying both ideas

    • kelly

      I sometimes use banana peppers.

    • jack

      When you cut the jalapenos and remove all the seeds, place them in an ice bath for about 30 minutes. This removes about 90% of the heat.

    • MJ

      I soak my jalapeños (after removing seeds) in Silk coconut milk for 30 minutes. It removes all the spicy and tastes wonderful!

  5. apwade21

    I need to get an air fryer:)

  6. twizzdmob

    You can bake these in a regular oven too. My hubs LOVES these! I’ll have to make them for our Wrestlemania party. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Lina D

      Yes! Perfect. Enjoy them! And a wrestlemania party sounds fun!

      • Missyv

        These are my favorite! My husband and I eat a Keto diet, and it never disappoints! Enough for leftovers the next day for sure.

  7. JJ

    Thanks so much for posting! I actually have all the ingredients and my husband just joined my keto lifestyle…he will be so happy to get these tonight!!!

  8. rpearson

    We’ve been making these for years, except not in the air fryer. A crowd favorite everywhere we take them. We never bring any home. Sometimes we’re lucky to even get one before they are gone.

  9. Edy

    I been wanting to make poblano peppers stuffed with cheese , Chile relleno without the egg 🥚 I’m starving and looking at this , makes me want to be home ,

  10. Grandma Cathy

    I make these all the time in my air fryer. I add a little shredded cheese and some seasoning to my cream cheese. Also a good idea to put foil in the bottom of your fryer, under basket.

    • Lina D

      Thanks for sharing!

  11. Beth Younger

    I’m liking these air fryer recipes! More please 🙂

    • Laura

      Agreed! I just bought an air fryer (haven’t even unpacked it yet) and am so excited to try these recipes.

      My husband makes these in the oven and we love them. Can’t wait to use the air fryer.

      • flora

        Which air fryer? Any recommendations on them? Best sizes for a family of 4 (2 small eaters)

  12. Sarah-Rene

    My husband always make these for me but he add a shrimp 🍤 too instead of cream cheese alone. Mmmm…Yum!

  13. browniesmomma

    I make these on the grill in the summer and a small convection oven inside in winter. I don’t put the bacon on them, cuz I think they take away the taste of the pepper & cheese that way. I do season up my cream cheese with chives, garlic, veggie seasoning, ranch powder, etc., or anything you want to use. My little convection oven is the round kind, (like the infrared style), but it circulates the air just like an airfryer does. I think it is called a power fryer. Anyway, I happend to find it at a church resale shop a few years ago for only &1.00!! It works wonderful! I am ready to try the doughnuts next. Thankyou for all your recipes Lina.. 🙂

    • Lina D

      You’re so welcome! Enjoy!

  14. Karen

    I just made these and they’re delicious! I never would have thought to make them Keto friendly or cook them in my air fryer. I just wish my air fryer was bigger so I could make more in one batch! Thanks!

    • Lina D

      Oh great! Thanks for sharing!

    • Jerry

      I have a power air fryer oven. It will hold 20 of these.I use crab dip instead of cheese sometimes. Love them

  15. Kyliejay!

    Keep em coming I just bought an air fryer!! 😍

    • Lina D

      Excellent!

  16. Ashers

    My stepmom makes these with the mini sweet peppers and they’re good. I make mine with jalapenos and suggest using pineapple cream cheese, if you can find it. Sounds weird, but so delicious! Adds just a touch of sweet to the heat.

    • Lina D

      Wow! That sounds awesome 👏

  17. Nina

    I forget about jalapeños poppers but love them! And my air fryer! Will definitely be trying these. Thank you!

  18. olgraygirl

    I am also interested in an air fryer–would appreciate any recommendations as to brands, what price to look for, etc. Meanwhile, I’ll be grillin’ my poppers!

    • Erin

      I bought the large Yedi on amazon. Great reviews and great customer service. Plus it came with a bunch of accessories. Works great! I love it! You might check out the Corsiri, too.

  19. Leonna

    I love this, thanks! I also make a treat with a date stuffed with a pecan and wrapped with bacon, yummm

    • Lina D

      Oh that sounds delicious!

  20. Katie

    I froze a bunch of uncooked jalapeño poppers last fall! And have cooked them from frozen state in the air frier! That works fabulous too! We like to add some bbq sauce to them before cooking!

    • Lina D

      Wow! Great idea. Yum

    • Marie

      How long and what temp did I cook them from frozen?

  21. GotItTogetherish

    Never thought I wanted an air fryer… until this post! Yummm!!! 🥓 ❤️

  22. jackjill2004

    If you like these try jalepeno popper deviled eggs. They are delicious! Lots of recipes on Pinterest

  23. LC

    Yum!!!

  24. apwade21

    Yum gotta try these!

  25. Cathy

    Thanks for the recipe! These are AMAZING!

    • Lina D

      Oh hooray! I agree!

  26. martha kaye

    I was wondering if you spray the basket of the air fryer first? Also, do you preheat the fryer? Can’t wait to try this.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      On my air fryer – no I do not preheat. That’d be a good idea to spray the basket before! Thanks 👍

  27. Rachel

    We’ve been making these for years as well but it wasn’t until a local festival that we learned something new. Jalapeno Poppers are even more DELICIOUS when dipped in bbq sauce!!

    Thanks for sharing the air fryer recipe. We recently joined air fryer world and jalapeno poppers would be the little taste of summer we need right now!

  28. Amber

    Anyone else set of the smoke alarm making these in The air fryer?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Try adding a little water to the bottom of air fryer and it’s less likely to smoke.

  29. Christina

    Can these be made ahead and frozen? If so, should they be frozen uncooked or cooked? I would like to be able to make a large batch (we have a lot of peppers to harvest) then pull a few out to reheat for a snack once in a while.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think I would freeze them uncooked, then when ready just pop them in the oven or air fryer. 👍
