Two traditional bar appetizers just got a major makeover with this recipe. How about instead of choosing between jalapeno poppers or buffalo chicken wings, you just get both in one dish with the Buffalo Chicken Jalapeno Poppers?
Jalapeño poppers + buffalo chicken dip = buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers
A delicious low carb spin on two classic appetizers. These buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers have all the amazing flavors of traditional jalapeño poppers and buffalo chicken wings combined. I like to serve them with a big side of my Keto Avocado Ranch Dressing. They are the perfect appetizer for a low carb potluck, Super Bowl Sunday or even just your average idle Tuesday. These buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers are quick and easy to make and are always a crowd pleaser.
looking for low carb appetizer recipes and keto cocktails?
Two of the most common questions I get asked are about low carb appetizer recipes to take to parties and whether or not you can have alcohol on a low carb diet. I got asked this question so much in fact, that I decided to write a book about it. Yep, that's right! I wrote an entire book full of low carb cocktail and appetizer recipes. Keto Happy hour has something for every season. These buffalo chicken jalapeño poppers are a sneak peek inside the book!

So it’s Friday night and you’re feeling alright. You’re ready to dance the night away with a cocktail in your hand. OR, if you are more like me, you want to have a cocktail at home with friends. But how do you know what to drink? What is the best alcohol for a low carb diet. Or what alcohol is lowest in carbs?
First, I'm going to break down the carbs in alcohol for you. Check out my Complete Guide to Carbs in Alcohol. If you're wondering… Can you have alcohol on a low carb diet? Is alcohol keto? You might be saying to yourself “But wait? I can’t! I’m low carb.” Well, you are NOT low carb. You're are a person following a low carb lifestyle. Do not be defined by your dietary decisions. Doing so will lead to a life of restriction and feeling restricted often causes us to stray from our intended path. Besides, who wants to pass up low carb gummy worms. Especially when they are boozy low carb gummy worms.
