Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers is the kind of snack you will want to eat every day because it tastes that good.

One of the greatest things that air fryers can do is its ability to perfectly cook and crisp up bacon. That means that they are meant to make bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers on a regular basis.

Over the years I have cooked all kinds of things wrapped in bacon in the air fryer as it does such a fine job.

I always remember my mum would always cook my dads bacon in the oven in the grill tray. It seemed to take her ages, though it was always worth it for the beautiful smell of bacon.

But right now in the modern world, we can cook it in the air fryer and have it truly crispy in a fraction of the grill cooking time.

Up until making bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers, my all-time favourite was air fryer bacon wrapped chicken which is also AMAZING.

Just think, you could use my bacon wrapped jalapeno recipe for not just jalapenos but as a guide for cooking all your other favourite air fryer bacon treats.

Air Fryer Keto Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

I am not on Keto as I love my sugar and carbs too much. But if I was, I would eat these air fryer bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers as they are KETO friendly.

The ingredients are just jalapeno and cheese making them perfect for Keto and other low carb diets.

But these bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers are also Slimming World friendly and remind of all the different things you had on Slimming World that were wrapped in bacon.

Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers Time

The greatest thing about air fryer jalapeno poppers is the cooking time. It takes just 4 minutes of prep time followed by just 8 minutes of cook time.

It is a delicious easy prep snack recipe for your air fryer, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers For Kids

One of the main reasons I don’t eat bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers in the air fryer regularly is because of my little darlings.

You see I have Jorge who is 3 and Sofia who has just turned 5 and I have always thought that jalapenos was too spicy for them.

Jorge doesn’t care and will eat anything I give him, just like any other boy does, but it often causes him stomach cramps if it is something too hot.

So, to stop them feeling left out what you can do is get some baby sweet peppers. Red ones work well, and you can make these at the same time as your bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers.

The red will stand out and you will easily be able to see which ones are for your kids and which ones are yours.

Problem solved and you can all enjoy a delicious snack in the air fryer.

How To Air Fry Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers?

Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

It is so easy to air fry bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers and you can have them prepped in just 4 quick minutes.

I start by creating a bacon wrapped jalapenos production line:

  • I prep the jalapenos first. I slice them lengthways and remove any seeds as this is the spiciest part that I can’t handle!
  • I then use a spoon to load soft cheese into my jalapenos. This will always involve Philadelphia as I love it and rarely buy a different brand of soft cheese.
  • Then finally I will chop up a slice of bacon in half length ways and wrap each jalapeno in it.

It is that simple and best of all you can use whichever brand of bacon you like. If you follow Keto or any healthy lifestyle, I recommend the bacon at Butcher Box as it is very healthy and perfect for wrapping around food in the air fryer.

Or even better when you first sign up for Butcher Box you can get free bacon:
