Cheddar Jalapeño Chaffles

This keto low carb Cheddar Jalapeno Chaffle is the perfect bread substitute for anything!

I miss specialty bread, especially my favorite Jalapeño Cheddar bread that we’d used to get from our local bakery!

So when I started making chaffles, I immediately knew I wanted to experiment with making different combinations of sweet and savory ones!

One in particular that I wanted to get started on was the Jalapeño Cheddar chaffle!  Since we always have a jar of jalapeño in our fridge, I went right to work experimenting with different ratios.

I prefer my chaffles to be less eggy and more cheesy, so I followed our technique for the crispy version and added more cheese on the top and bottom.

Out came this very flavorful and crispy substitution for our Jalapeño Cheddar bread!

Now, let’s discuss what a chaffle is for those of you not familiar.  It’s basically a mixture of egg, cheese, maybe some seasoning mixed together and cooked on a waffle iron.

It’s low carb and keto friendly and serves as a solid bread alternative.  This is why I thought mixing cheddar and jalapeño into a chaffle mixture would be pretty awesome!

If you like your food spicy, you can use the ‘spicy’ jalapeño slices, otherwise you can use ‘regular’ or ‘mild’ jalapeño slices.  Usually it’s labeled on the jar.

You can use just shredded Cheddar or a Cheddar mix/blend, which is what we prefer.  Either way it’ll taste delicious!

This chaffle will run ~1.5g net carbs per waffle due to the anti-caking ingredients found in most pre-shredded store bought cheese.

However, if you’re strict on your carbs, you can shred your own block cheese which will net you ~0g net carbs per waffle.
