Keto Chicken Stuffed Jalapenos

I didn’t think it was possible, but these 2-bite stuffed jalapenos have so many layers of flavors to them! So many!

First off there is that crunchy and spicy jalapeno shell.

Then there is that filling of sauteed chicken and lightly caramelized onion that is gloriously spiced with coriander, smoked paprika, turmeric, fresh ginger, and garlic.

Then comes a dollop of tangy and creamy avocado cream.

And that is topped off by pan-roasted bits of beautifully Striped Holland Bell Peppers.

A final dusting of finely chopped parsley and good golly low carb deliciousness!

We love these Keto Stuffed Jalapenos!

These Keto Stuffed Jalapenos are a tasty and wholesome 2-bite appetizer – and make a fantastic addition to your Big Game line up of snacks!

Ingredients to make Keto Stuffed Jalapenos

This year you might be gathering virtually with friends and family to catch the Big Game. But what won’t be virtual is your snack choices! And y’all, I’m going to be honest, I have always been more about the food at Big Game gatherings of yore!

So, if you embarked on a low carb/keto diet this year and are looking for a variety of fresh and tasty low carb/keto snacks to add to your Big Game Day snacking roster, these are a delicious and unique addition!

I made a run to Sprouts recently to grab some of their air-chilled chicken. Well, I’m beginning to realize that telling myself I am going to Sprouts for just one thing is me lying to myself! A trip to Sprouts for me means heading to the department or section where the one thing I need is.

Then, after I get that, I get lured to the produce section. If you have ever shopped in the Sprouts produce section, you will understand the pull of their produce. Their produce is so fresh. And, most times, they have some sort of unique vegetable or fruit in season that must be tried.

After that, I usually take the long way to the cashier station. The long way entails I meander through just about every aisle between the produce section in the back of the store and the cashier station in the front.

It is because of all this meandering that I can tell you that Sprouts has tons of keto products. From crackers to tortillas to BBQ sauce, Sprouts has a keto product to help you make the traditional big game snacks you love, with a low-carb twist!

While I am not on a keto diet, I do enjoy low carb meals and snacks from time to time. After all, I need to balance out the cake and cookies – right?

But even though I am not on a strict Keto diet, I so enjoy trying out low carb/keto products as well as the latest trending products that spring up on Sprouts shelves from time to time.

Products like this keto pancake mix – which you could include in your game day snacking as well. Think little pancakes topped with egg and bacon or the spicy chicken which I used in these Keto Stuffed Jalapenos and that avocado cream!

Which brings us back to these Keto Stuffed Jalapenos!

Y’all, these are so tasty. If you prefer a slightly less spicy Keto Stuffed Jalapeno, then, when you split the jalapeno in half, carefully remove as much of the seeds as you can. You might want to wear gloves when you do this. You can also add more avocado cream to balance off the spicy jalapenos.

I had so much fun making these. But I had even more fun eating these. As did my daughter who walked off with the tray with most of these on it as I put my camera away after taking the photos you see here.

When she polished off the last one of those Keto Stuffed Jalapenos, she put the leftover avocado cream on her plate and topped it off with leftovers of the spiced chicken. She then added some of the pan-roasted bell peppers to this. I had to grab a spoonful or two – and good golly deliciousness – even without the jalapeno shell. Which had me thinking I could make a delicious low carb meal of the spiced chicken filling on mashed avocado!

In this recipe for Keto Stuffed Jalapenos, jalapenos are stuffed with a spicy chicken stuffing, topped with an avocado cream, and bits of sauteed bell peppers, making for some delicious low carb snacking!


For the Stuffed Jalapenos

  • 8 jalapenos
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1- inch piece of ginger
  • 4 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ lb Sprouts chicken
  • Salt and pepper
  • Parsley to garnish OPTIONAL

For the Avocado Cream

  • ½ avocado skin removed
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the topping

  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt and pepper


  • First off let’s do some prepping. Start of by rinsing and drying the jalapenos. Then, cut them in half and remove as much of the seeds and pit as you can. However, if you would like these to be a bit on the spicy side, leave in a few of the seeds.
  • Peel the ginger by removing the skin with a pairing knife. Also, peel the garlic cloves, and onion.
  • Then chop the onion up. Also, chop up the ginger and garlic.
  • Also dice up the chicken into tiny pieces so they can be stuffed into the jalapenos.
  • Rinse and dice up the bell pepper, removing the pit and insides first.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • And now we begin cooking by adding the oil to a frying pan along with the diced onion. Let onion saute about 5 minutes, stirring it often.
  • Then add in the garlic and ginger and sauté for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the coriander, smoked paprika, and turmeric, and stir it around with the onion, ginger, and garlic.
  • Then, push the onion, ginger, garlic mixture to the side of the pan and add in the diced chicken and let it cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Flip the chicken over and let it cook for another 3-5 minutes. Stir well so it is coated with all the spices. Then set it aside.
  • Using a small spoon, spoon the spicy chicken mixture into the jalapenos and stuff it in tight. You will probably have some leftovers of the spicy chicken so spoon this
    into a serving bowl to serve on the side.
  • When all the jalapenos have been stuffed, place them on a foil / silpat lined baking
    tray and spray them with cooking spray and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • While they are baking, make the avocado cream by mashing up ½ an avocado with the Greek yogurt.
  • Then add in the lime juice and salt and season with salt and pepper to taste. If you would like the avocado cream silky smooth, then you can use an immersion blender to blend until smooth.
  • Add 1 tbsp oil and the diced bell pepper to the same pan and sauté for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.


  • Add a dollop of the avocado cream to the top of the stuffed jalapenos and a few bits of the sauteed bell pepper.
  • Serve with the remaining bell peppers and extra avocado cream and chicken stuffing on the side.


*If you would like more of the jalapeno to stuff, instead of halving the jalapenos, just cut off the top 1/3rd part of the jalapeno so there’s more jalapeno to stuff. Of course, you will end up with bits of jalapeno – which you could chop up and add to the chicken mix instead of discarding.

    I couldn’t believe how much flavor these little guys had! I love the idea of low carb snacks and this one had not only a filling stuffing but a creamy crema that was the perfect topper. This will be a Super Bowl app for sure.

  9. David @ Spiced says:

    Oh, these stuffed jalapenos are right up my alley, Shashi! I love (!!) stuffed jalapenos, but we don’t make ’em here at home very often. I remember trying whole jalapenos stuffed with shrimp back in Atlanta. Mind blown. I suspect these jalapenos stuffed with that seasoned chicken would lead to the same reaction!

    Real food is the best. These look fabulous!

  11. Hannah says:

    After trying this recipe for myself, all I can say is WOW! This is not only simply, but so unexpectedly delicious! I’ve never thought to use avacadoes in a creamy sauce like this, and it’s AMAZING!
