If you've enjoyed my low carb Halloween Chips and Halloween Quesadilla – you'll love these poppers! The inspiration started with my crazy “Mammoth Jalapeño” plant. It was less than a foot tall when I planted it in late July, and just when everything else is dying back and preparing for winter, my jalapeño plant keeps growing and growing. And producing peppers, too!Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

While looking for recipe ideas for fresh jalapeños I though of jalapeño poppers, and then came across ones that looked like mummies by wrapping them in crescent roll pastry. I figured that I could make a low carb version by using my most trusty ingredient – low carb wraps! This recipe has probably the longest preparation time out of any on this blog – but cooking time is quick and the results are SO worth it. 🙂

How to Make Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers

Cut each jalapeño in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and pith. Take whatever cautions you think necessary to protect yourself from potential burns! Place the cut jalapeños on a baking tray lined with a silicone mat. Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

Mix together cream cheese and shredded cheese in a bowl. I used an Italian blend of cheese but pretty much anything works in this recipe. Scoop a spoonful of the mixture into the cavity of each jalapeño half.Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

Cut low carb wraps (I used Mission Carb Balance Whole Wheat Fajita – 3g net carb each) into 8-10 strips. Thinner is better for wrapping! Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

Wind two strips around each jalapeño, tucking ends underneath or into the cheese mixture to secure them. I definitely got better at this, and went back to re-do the early ones! Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

Bake in a preheated oven for around 8 minutes – or until the cheese starts to brown.

If you want, press edible googly eyes into any gaps that you've left between the tortilla strips while the cheese is still warm. This part is completely optional – the eyes aren't exactly low carb and definitely not sugar free. As far as I can work out, there are 4g net carbs in one teaspoon of the candy eyes. That's maybe four eyes? Very hard to say, so your guess is as good as mine.Low Carb Halloween Jalapeño Poppers - fun party snacks that look like mummies!

This is a cute idea. Your plant IS getting big, lol. I remember one year when I was a girl and my parents jalepeno peppers and heirloom Italian peppers crossed. The sweet peppers were hotter than the spicy ones! I'm a fan of poppers, so this recipe sounds great to me.
