Texas Twinkies

Do not be fooled by the Twinkie title! A Texas Twinkie is not a sugar-filled spongy dessert— it is a meat-lovers dream stuffed with all the good things in life.

This savory Twinkie is like a jalapeno popper made into a delicious keto meal!

My Texas Twinkie recipe was inspired my my other Keto Twinkie recipe (click HERE to find). Where I used leftover ribs for the wrapping, which is delicious, just a bit harder to wrap!

It is hard to find bacon without sugar and when you do it is VERY expensive! That is why I order Butcherbox bacon! It is sugar free and it is mailed to my front door!

  • 4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature or Kite Hill spread if dairy free
  • 4 small jalapeños
  • 1/4 teaspoon Redmond Real Garlic Salt use code Maria15 for 15% off
  • 1 pound sugar free chorizo sausage
  • 8 slices sugar free bacon
  • Primal Kitchen Sauces for serving use code MARIA for 20% off


  • Preheat oven or air fryer to 375 degrees F (or oven to 425 degrees F). Remove the stems from the jalapenos and slice in half. Scoop out the ribs and seeds.
  • Stuff each jalapeno slice piece with a few TBS of the cream cheese, sprinkle the cream cheese with Redmond Garlic Salt and place 2 halves of jalapeno together.
  • Place about 1/4 pound of chorizo sausage in the palm of your hand, and flatten the sausage thin and place a stuffed jalapeno in the center. Fold the sausage and around the jalapeno, forming an egg shape.
  • Wrap with 2 thin slice of bacon to cover the entire egg. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Place onto a baking sheet with rimmed edges (or bacon grease will get everywhere).
  • Bake the eggs at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.
  • We served ours with Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing and Buffalo Sauce!

  • Wendy says:

    Hi Maria, these are truly amazing! Since I don’t care for jalapenos, I made mine with mini bell peppers. I also sprinkled a bit of blue cheese into each one before wrapping. One question – do you have the nutritional value for these babies? I ate two and I’m pretty sure that was WAY more than a serving. Thank you!
