Looking for an epic snack idea? Unleash your inner foodie with these tasty low FODMAP jalapeño poppers!
Ok, peeps! Apparently jalapeño poppers are a controversial topic in the Agur household. So I'm going to need you all to set my husband straight!
He thinks a jalapeño popper MUST be breaded and fried in order to qualify as a “proper popper.” I, however, feel like it's a jalapeño and it pops in your mouth so that should definitely count!
Plus, they're stuffed with 2 kinds of cheese and bacon, and what more could you possibly need in a snack?
While he did agree this recipe is epically delicious (which is a feat of magic because he's the pickiest eater I know), he's adamant we can't call them poppers. Let me know what you think in the comments below so we can settle this raging debate!!
Keep it FODMAP friendly
Take your snacks and apps to the next level with these cheeky low FODMAP jalapeño poppers! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, jalapeños! You have two options, here. Pickled jalapeños only have trace amounts of FODMAPs, so these won't add anything to your FODMAP load. They're also a little less spicy than fresh jalapeños if that's something you want to think about.
You can also use fresh jalapeños. But these haven't been tested by Monash, yet. So save these until after you've finished your re-challenges!
Next up, goat cheese. According to the Monash app, goat cheese is low FODMAP in servings of 1 tbsp (40 g) per sitting. Servings of 2 cups or more are high in the FODMAP lactose.
We'll be using about 1 tsp per jalapeño, which works out to 14 g per serving. This is within Monash's recommended range.
We'll also be using cream cheese. If you're in the elimination phase, you'll need to use lactose-free cream cheese. So this won't add anything to your FODMAP load.
The remaining ingredients won't add anything to your FODMAP load!
