I am a jalapeno popper fanatic! I would eat them every day if I could.

Ok, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but not much of one. 

Before I went low carb I came up with this Jalapeno Popper Pasta Salad and it became a picnic and BBQ fave. 

I also made these Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs and was sooooo happy when I realized that they were perfect for low carb and keto peeps. 

Mini Me just told me that she has been dreaming about those deviled eggs, which I know is code for "Mom will you please make me those deviled eggs for me?" 😂

I have a ton of popper variation recipes flying around in my head. They are main dishes, side dishes, salads, etc. 

Please tell me you get as excited about these flavors as I do!

CAN I EAT MEATLOAF ON A LOW CARB OR KETO DIET?

I know most meatloaf recipes use bread or breadcrumbs as a binder, which means they are a no-no if you are living la vida low carb. 

So, since the Mr. is a HUGE meatloaf lover. I mean like he could eat meatloaf every week meatloaf lover! I knew one of the first recipes I was going to adapt was my Mom's Meatloaf recipe.

I found that you could either use almond flour or crushed pork rinds.

That was a hard one for me because, before I went keto I hated pork rinds with a passion. But, hubs loves them.

Pair that with the fact that almond flour does add carbs whereas pork rinds do not and pork rinds it was.

Be careful though, not all pork rinds are created equal. 

You want pork rinds that are keto-friendly, which means they are either baked, or fried in keto-friendly oil or lard, not vegetable oils. I always check ingredients but a lot of the time my grocery store is out so I just order them from Amazon so I know I will have them when I need them.

Tip - Since I make a lot of meatloaves, I will grind an entire bag of pork rinds and store them in my freezer in an airtight container, or if I am feeling especially frisky, I will make several meatloaves and freeze them for quick and easy dinners!

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO MAKE THIS JALAPENO POPPER MEATLOAF RECIPE:



Also helpful are:

Kitchen scale (helpful in making sure the meatloaves, and the filling, are all the same weight)
Foil or parchment paper

This recipe is easily customized to your own taste.

Not huge on spice? Use 1 jalapeno instead of 2.

Hubs and I love jalapeno so I don't even remove the ribs and seeds from my jalapenos, which is where all of the heat lives in a pepper.

But, if you are not a regular traveler on the jalapeno bandwagon, you would certainly remove the ribs and seeds and/or only use one pepper. 

Jalapenos can be tricky little guys though. 

I make homemade salsa fresca on a regular basis and it is like rolling the dice when you buy jalapenos. Sometimes it will come out spicy and other times I am like, "Umm hello? Are there peppers in this recipe?"!

A little tip that I was told, the wrinkled jalapenos are spicier. So, if you want heat go for the wrinkles!

Do you like lots of creamy cheesy filling? 

There is a debate going on here between the menfolk AKA The Mr. and Mini Me's other half Josh, and the girls.

We like things creamy, gooey, cheesy, etc.

Then men? Prefer more meat, less filling.

So, are you Team Cream Cheese?

Yes! Double the recipe for the cream cheese filling and roll it into 2-ounce "logs" instead of 1-ounce ones.

More of a meathead? 

Perfect, just make the recipe as written and go to town!
