SLOW COOKER LOW CARB JALAPENO POPPER SOUP
I love to eat jalapeno poppers, but I don’t love all the prep work that goes into them. I found a fun new way to get the flavors I enjoy in a soup my family loves!
I also love how easy this recipe is. No more prepping and stuffing the individual peppers…just put everything in the slow cooker and let it work its magic!
WILL SLOW COOKER LOW CARB JALAPENO POPPER SOUP BE TOO SPICY FOR MY KIDS?
There’s a little bit of spice to this dish, but it is balanced nicely by the creamy base and other flavors. The low, slow cooking also works well to mellow out the spice and let all the flavors meld together!
DO I NEED TO TAKE PRECAUTIONS WHEN WORKING WITH THE JALAPENO PEPPERS?
Whenever you’re working with peppers, it’s always a good idea to work with gloves. This is especially important when you’re preparing or cutting raw peppers, but it’s also a good idea when working with chopped, canned jalapenos. The capsaicin in peppers can easily irritate your skin, eyes, and nose, so it is something to be careful with.
WILL SLOW COOKER LOW CARB JALAPENO POPPER SOUP FREEZE WELL?
Due to the dairy in this soup, I would not recommend freezing it; many dairy products tend to separate when frozen and thawed. This soup keeps very well in the refrigerator though, and it’s so easy to pull out for lunches or a quick dinner. You might even want to make extra to keep some on hand!

I love anything with jalapeno, and this soup will be a hit in our home, too. It looks so comforting and perfect on a rainy cold day.
I have never seen a soup like this before! Love slow cooker soups. My husband loves jalapeño poppers!
Bring on the heat! Love the flavors in jalapeño poppers, but I don’t have the patience to stuff each pepper. This soup fixes that! Delicious and easy to put together.
