Jalapeno Popper Casserole

The combination of jalapenos, cream cheese, and bacon is out of this world! If you’re a fan of the jalapeno popper, you will love this Jalapeno Popper Casserole! We’ve taken all the fabulous flavors and textures of a jalapeno popper and reworked it into a casserole. We added cauliflower to keep it low-carb, chicken breasts for protein, and used low-fat cheeses and turkey bacon. If you want to keep it meat-free, however, just omit the chicken breasts and turkey bacon and double the cauliflower for a tasty vegetarian meal.

Serve with a side salad for a delicious dinner any day of the week that your whole family is sure go crazy for! It also reheats well, so you could make it and portion out for lunches for the week!
