Cheeseburger Stuffed Jalapenos

Today, I got the irresistible urge to eat a cheeseburger. I’ve been eating pretty healthy lately, so I was trying my best to fight that urge. After a lot of fighting, I finally gave in. But instead, I decided to give the classic cheeseburger a healthy twist.

We LOVE spicy food in our home. These cheeseburger stuffed jalapenos feel like a spicy, delicious guilty pleasure, but without all the unhealthy carbs of a traditional burger. When hallowing out the jalapenos, try to get all of the veins and seeds out if you prefer less spiciness.

This recipe is low carb, full of fiber, and great for parties! We plan on serving it as a superbowl appetizer. If you want to serve a crowd, it’s super easy to increase the ingredients and make a ton of them.

Let’s get started!
