Jalapeno poppers are pretty much the perfect snack choice for anyone out there who loves spicy foods. To make it even better, wrap it in bacon. Believe me when I tell you that bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers are the best kind of poppers. These are 100% paleo approved thanks to the combination of raw cashews, lemon juice, garlic powder, and onion powder. Together, they complement the bacon and jalapeno to bring out their natural flavors. This is one of those dishes that I never thought to make but it’s been a staple in my household ever since.
