Gluten-free jalapeño poppers are cheesy, crispy perfection! Made with flaxseeds for fibre, this 15 minute appetizer is savoury and low carb.
You must be able to tell by now that we adore spicy food over at our house! From chicken and rice burritos to buffalo chicken lettuce tacos, there is just something about Mexican food that has a key to my heart.
Another fantastic recipe to add to the list, these jalapeño poppers give just the right amount of spice – not overdoing it – with cheesy, crispy goodness. The perfect appetizer to serve when guests come over, or simply fulfill those everyday cravings whenever you please.
Just like your favourite appetizer from your favourite restaurant, or even the memories of ordering poppers from your favourite chip truck, these will be your new go-to snack that’s low in carbs are high in fibre. That’s the flaxseeds making these babies a healthier treat.
The fun part about making them is the fact that you can customize! If you want to add bacon bits, chives, or even tomato, do it! I used asiago cheese just to be different, but you can use light cream cheese or feta cheese. It will work in so many ways.
If you are looking for a vegan option, use shredded vegan cheese. It’s that simple.
