Stuffed jalapeño peppers with dairy free cream cheese, dill & a crunchy topping. These easy jalapeño poppers make a great appetizer or game-day snack!



  • 12 large jalapenos, top cut off and deseeded
  • 8 ounces plain dairy free cream cheese (I used Kite Hill)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh dill, chopped finely
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup pork rinds (this is the whole30 brand I used), place in a small zip lock bag and crush with the bottom of a cup


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a bowl combine dairy free cream cheese, fresh dill, garlic powder, smoked paprika and black pepper together.
  4. Transfer the filling mixture into a small sandwich sized zip lock bag and zip shut, snip off one corner and pipe the filling into the hollowed out jalapenos.
  5. Bake the stuffed jalapenos for 10-12 minutes until they begin to turn golden brown.
  6. Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving dish.
  7. Sprinkle crushed pork rinds over the top of each stuffed jalapeno pepper and serve.


*If the dairy free cream cheese filling comes out of the oven with a “baked” and non-sticky top layer then mix it up slightly with a fork before sprinkling on the pork rinds so that they will stick.

*Leftovers can be covered and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat place in a 300 degree oven for several minutes until warmed through.
