Bacon Wrapped Chorizo Lime Jalapeno Poppers


Bacon Wrapped Chorizo Lime Jalapeno Poppers.   Not only is the name a mouthful but it’s a spicy bit of taste bud nirvana.  I wrote  about my addiction to deli poppers in my losing weight series and, in an attempt to make a more gluten-free recipe, created this delicious rendition.

This was the first time I had ever messed with a jalepeno and woo wee, I learned some lessons.  First, wear gloves.   Second, do NOT and I mean  DO NOT touch any part of your face or eyes.    Wow, yeah, I can’t even imagine being a hippy in the 60s getting hit with a can of mace.  No way.  Anyhow, make a bunch of these because they are going to disappear before your eyes!

Author: Kelly Bejelly @ A Girl Worth Saving


Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 oz Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 1 lime , juiced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese

Chorizo Filling


  • 8 pieces bacon
  • 8 jalapenos


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine and blend the cream cheese, Parmesan, and lime juice with a spoon. Set aside.
  3. In a small pan over medium high heat combine the chorizo and red onion and cook until done. Add in the tsp of ghee, coconut or bacon fat, cacao and cinnamon and stir well with a heat resistant spatula.
  4. Slice the Jalepenos as shown in the photo. De-seed.
  5. You're going to stuff the jalapenos in a ratio of 2 to 1 with the Cream Cheese filling being the larger portion.
  6. Wrap the Jalapenos in Bacon and place on a baking sheet in an oven for 30 - 35 minutes. For extra color you can place the Jalapeno Poppers under the broiler on low for 2 -3 minutes - watch them because you don't want them to burn.
  7. Enjoy

    I thought that Cream Cheese and Parmesan Cheese were not part of a Paleo diet! I thought Paleo does NOT allow any dairy!

    1. Kelly Bejelly November 16, 2014 at 9:16 pm

      Hun, I follow a Primal diet which allows for dairy. Honestly, it really comes down to if you tolerate dairy or not.
