While jalapeno poppers are traditionally all about the cheese (and sometimes bacon), this version brings the protein by adding canned tuna to the filling. While they make a great appetizer or snack, the additional protein also makes these a great light lunch: just add a side salad or some avocado.

Tuna Jalapeno Poppers
I am a Nurse, wife, and mom. I have spent over 20 years in Healthcare and always took care of everyone else. Finally, after years of yo-yo dieting and failed New Years' resolutions, and complete desperation, I found something that Finally worked for me. I have been doing this Keto/Low carb lifestyle for over 3 years and have lost over 100lbs. My goal was to bring this lifestyle to my family and we went from couch potatoes to our 1st 5k and have lost over 300 lbs. We still have a long way to reach our goals, but we strive to be better every day. I enjoy helping women bring this Keto/Low carb lifestyle to the family.
