Texas Twinkies

Do not be fooled by the Twinkie title! A Texas Twinkie is not a sugar-filled spongy dessert— it is a meat-lovers dream stuffed with all the good things in life.

This savory Twinkie is like a jalapeno popper made into a delicious keto meal!

My Texas Twinkie recipe was inspired my my other Keto Twinkie recipe. Where I used leftover ribs for the wrapping, which is delicious, just a bit harder to wrap!

I also wanted to wrap my savory Twinkies in Chorizo Sausage since I had a package of Pederson’s Farms chorizo in my freezer. I love that I found Pederson’s Farms because none of their products have added sugar! Too often my boys want a simple meal of hot dogs, or Kielbasa and now I feel good about giving them organic sausages without any sugar!

Texas Twinkies

  1. Preheat oven or air fryer to 375 degrees F. Remove the stems from the jalapenos and slice in half. Scoop out the ribs and seeds.
  2. Stuff each jalapeno slice piece with a few TBS of the cream cheese, sprinkle the cream cheese with Redmond Garlic Salt and place 2 halves of jalapeno together.
  3. Place about ¼ pound of chorizo sausage in the palm of your hand, and flatten the sausage thin and place a stuffed jalapeno in the center. Fold the sausage and around the jalapeno, forming an egg shape.
  4. Wrap with 2 thin slice of bacon to cover the entire egg. Secure with a toothpick.
  5. Place onto a baking sheet with rimmed edges (or bacon grease will get everywhere).
  6. Bake the eggs at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.
  7. We served ours with Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing and Buffalo Sauce!
