Low Carb Jalapeños Pops


This simple recipe is adapted from the Inn At The Crossroads (Game of Thrones) website.

To make them low carb I used ground pork rinds instead of cornflakes and skipped the milk.

Pork rinds are a staple in my low carb kitchen, and I even keep extra bags in the freezer. Anytime a recipe calls for breadcrumbs, I just use the pork rinds instead.

Ingredients:

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) package shredded cheese (whatever you like)
1 onion, minced
1 tsp ground garlic salt
1 tsp ground cayenne pepper
15 fresh jalapeño peppers, seeded and halved lengthwise
2 cups ground pork rinds (Have a full bag ready as this depends how fine you blitz them)
Crushed red peppers (I used ghost peppers)
A few leaves of chopped parsley for garnish
Olive oil cooking spray (optional)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line with foil.
In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, shredded cheese, onion, and spices. Stuff jalapeño halves with the mixture.
Gently top each piece with enough ground pork rinds to cover.
Spray with olive oil (for crispier crumb)……
Bake in for 30 minutes, or until filling is bubbly and the top is lightly browned.
Add crushed peppers and parsley before serving.
