Keto prosciutto-wrapped jalapeno poppers… They make life a little exciting!

Eat them as a snack, a side dish, or an hors-d’oeuvre. At least that’s what I do. 😉

The holidays are here and Superbowl’s around the corner. This is one of those easy-to-make recipes with only three ingredients that everybody will love.

You know when you’re at a party and you keep going back to the food table for that one item you can’t get enough of? These prosciutto-wrapped jalapeno poppers are it. You’ll be going back for more.

The prosciutto is very flavorful. Jalapenos can be spicy if you want (though I usually go for mild on these). And then the cream cheese creates the perfect balance between all the ingredients.

Yummy!

To me, this recipe is a perfect example of why it’s so easy to eat low carb high fat foods. If you’re doing keto, or just eating low fat high carb (like me), pin or save this one to come back to.
