I know I swore off making these kinds of waffles but my husband was trying to keep his carbs down for awhile and I was running out of things to make him for breakfast.
He’s not an egg eater so that limits what I can make him. He does love these low carb waffles though.
They have a hint of spice, though not too much because I cleaned out the ribs and seeds really well. And the rest is just cheesy goodness.
It’s so easy to make these low carb jalapeño popper waffles that I made a bunch and froze them for later. They would make a good snack or appetizer too!
I Have A Lot Of Keto Savory Waffle Recipes!
When you make these and find that you love them (at least I hope you will) come back and check out some of my other 9 savory low carb waffles.
My favorite is probably my pizza waffle or the chicken, ham and swiss. They are all just variations of this recipe but I even have a pumpkin waffle for my dog! (That one doesn’t have cheese or peppers in it though so it’s safe for pups.)
I love them because they only take a few minutes to make and they taste delicious!
Ingredients I Used.
The ingredients I used in these jalapeno popper waffles were a jalapeno pepper, a bell sweet pepper, eggs, cauliflower rice, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese.
As I mentioned above I really cleaned out the jalapeno pepper of it’s seeds and ribs to make sure these waffles weren’t too hot. Though my husband loves hot stuff, I didn’t think it would be a good way to start his morning.
If you want it more spicy, keep the ribs in. That might be nice if you are making these for a snack or appetizer. I also used a mini bell pepper to give it color and more pepper taste.
My New Favorite Waffle Iron.
I have two waffle irons, one is an Oster waffle iron which is full size and now my Dash mini waffle maker. Both are inexpensive and excellent for keto waffles.
I used my Dash mini waffle maker for these kind of recipes and they work perfectly! The small size is good because these are filling and I don’t think you need more than one for a snack or breakfast.

Low Carb Jalapeño Waffles
These low carb jalapeño popper waffles can be a great snack, lunch or even breakfast! They are savory waffles with a bit of a kick and only take a few minutes to make. 1.1g net carbs each.
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely diced
- 1 mini sweet pepper, finely diced
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup mozzarella, shredded
- ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- ½ cup cauliflower rice
Clean the ribs and seeds out of the jalapeño and then finely dice both peppers.
Tor rice the cauliflower, add florets to a food processor and pulse a few times until they resemble rice grains.
In a bowl, beat the eggs and then add the rest of the ingredients.
Heat up waffle iron. If you manufacturers directions suggests greasing first, please grease before cooking each waffle.
Add a bit of waffle mixture to your waffle iron in the center and cook as you would any other waffle. Continue until mixture is gone. This made 6 small waffles for me.
Eat immediately or if freezing, reheat in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds. They will not be crunchy when reheating but they will taste delicious anyway.
