Are Mushrooms Keto?
You bet they are! Not only can you eat mushrooms on keto, but they’re loaded with nutrition. Mushrooms are low in carbs and high in fiber, which makes them a great vegetable on a keto diet. With about 2 net carbs per 1 cup serving, they’re a tasty choice.
What You Need To Make Jalapeno Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
- Food processor
- Mushrooms – I used white button mushrooms but cremini will work, too. You can also do a stuffed portobello mushroom.
- Jalapeno – fresh is best!
- PepperJack cheese – shredded
- Cream cheese
- Garlic powder
- Paprika or chipotle powder to dust on top
How To Make This Keto Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe
It’s pretty complicated (just kidding). Are you ready for these low-carb stuffed mushrooms?
- Clean the mushrooms and pop out the stems.
- De-seed the jalapeno and pop it along with the cheeses and garlic powder into a food processor and pulse until smooth.
- Stuff the mushrooms with the filling and bake. Then dig into this tasty appetizer!
Jalapeno Cream Cheese Mushrooms are Perfect For Snacking!
I’ll admit to even making a meal of them! Another fun way to enjoy these stuffed mushroom caps is as a part of an appetizer buffet or tapas meal. Other tasty appetizers include this creamy crab dip, Chuy’s creamy jalapeno dip, double-stuffed pork shots, and these crispy crackers.
Chef Jenn’s Tips to Make The Perfect Jalapeno Stuffed Mushrooms
- A food processor is going to be the easiest way to make this filling. Alternatively, you can very finely chop the jalapeno and mix the ingredients by hand.
- De-seed the jalapeno to keep the heat under control. The seeds are also tough and may not get chopped up finely enough in the processor.
- Shred your cheese by hand whenever possible to avoid the starches they put on the bags of shreds to keep them from clumping. This starch will also add a grainy texture to your recipes.
- No pepperjack? No problem! Try mozzarella, cheddar, gouda, or your favorite cheese.
- Don’t overfill the mushrooms! Because they’re baked, the filling will get oozy. The more you fill, the more will ooze out.
- Top the mushrooms with some pork panko for a bit of golden brown crunch!
Yes! They’re grown in biological material that you don’t want to eat. As a chef, I give you permission to wash your mushrooms under running water. Just try to keep the water out of the underside of the cap as they will absorb a wee bit of the water.
No, I don’t recommend it. Canned mushrooms have far too much liquid in them and you’ll just end up with a soggy mess.
Look for big white button mushrooms, or cremini mushrooms will also work. You can also add this mixture to Portobello mushrooms. Try them all!
