Are you a fan of Jalapeño Poppers? If so you’re going to LOVE these keto-friendly Pickle Poppers! I love the tanginess of the pickles, it’s a nice change from spicy jalapeños making it great for kids as well as adults that don’t care for spicy food. These are sure to be a hit at your next gathering, Fourth of July celebrations and garden barbecues!

These look fun, but I hate cream cheese - and it hates me back. Is there anything I could use instead to keep the shredded cheese in place? Thanks!


Hi Lauren or Martha,
I plan to make these, as they really look appetizing. I’m not much of a cook and probably should know this, but what kind of pickles should I use for this recipe?
Thanks, Ron


Hi Ron, ideally sugar-free dill pickled cucumbers but it depends on what you prefer, other herbs & spices are great too!
