  4.   Remove the seeds from the jalapenos. I highly recommend using gloves to get rid of the seeds. Even after washing my hands, I’ve inadvertently touched my eyes after chopping onions or jalapenos. The result…painful.
  5.  Add the cream cheese to a small bowl. Add the salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin and minced garlic and work it into the cream cheese using the back of a fork.

  7.  Take your cut bacon strips and wrap one around each jalapeno until all 10 have been wrapped. Wrap with as much or as little bacon as you like.
  8. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the bacon has cooked through. Enjoy your keto jalapeno poppers!
