Jalapeno Poppers

You will never ever use another recipe again. The biggest challenge to this recipe it too not eat all the filling before you put it into the jalapenos! I am not reinventing a wheel with this recipe I simply make some modifications to it.

Being mostly dairy free has never tasted sooooo good. Even the non-paleo will be wanting the recipe. If by chance there are leftovers, they heat up pretty well the next day. This mix would also be tasty to make pinwheel appetizers with.


Prep Time: 0:10 | Cook Time: 0:25 | Total Time: 0:35


  • 1 teaspoon garlic crushed
  • 2 tablespoon dairy free cream cheese I use Kite Hill Almond Milk Cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise I use Sir Kensington's, any homemade, clean, or paleo will work
  • 3 whole green onion Use all of white and about 3/4 of green portion on each
  • 3 slices nitrate free bacon cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon Primal Palate Steak Seasoning you just need to use this, all others did not taste the same
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower riced, I use the frozen bag
  • 7-14 whole jalapenos depending on size of jalapeno


  1. Pre heat grill to 375-400 or preheat oven to 375.

  2. Over medium heat in a small skillet cook the bacon, remove bacon from grease, and set aside to cool. Once bacon is cooled break down into small bits.

  3. Allow bacon grease to cool down enough to decrease the splatter when you add the cauliflower rice. Once cooled down a little put the cauliflower rice and crushed garlic in it and heat thoroughly. Then set aside. This takes about 2-3 minutes.

  4. In a small bowl combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, green onion, steak seasoning. Add in bacon bits, and riced cauliflower with garlic mix. Mix thoroughly.

  5. Wash jalapenos and cut the tops and core or you can cut lengthwise and core. Your preference.

  6. Fill jalapenos and place on preheated grill for 20-25 minutes. When the filling begins to get browned they are done. Cook time will be the same for grill or oven.

Recipe Notes

**For a little extra heat chop the cored out jalapenos innards and add to mixture.

**For the heat seekers finely dice a hot pepper of your choice to the mixture

** If you cut the tops off the jalapenos and keep them whole--I filled a baggie with the mixture and piped the mixture into the jalapenos. Then used a knife the push the mix to the bottom and put more mix into the pepper.
