Looking for an easy Keto appetizer? These stuffed piquillo peppers are the perfect combo of cheese, pepper and low carb goodness. These are a super simple keto recipe that will be a hit at your next party!



  1. Mix the garlic, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, and red pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Open the jar of piquillo peppers.
  3. Stuff piquillo peppers with cheese mixture.
  4. Place stuffed piquillo peppers onto a baking sheet. I line my baking sheet with foil.
  5. Brush garlic olive oil, salt and pepper onto peppers.
  6. Place peppers into oven 375 degrees for approximately 12 minutes.


You want the cheese to SLIGHTLY brown. These will be HOT when you remove the Keto stuffed peppers from the oven so baker beware! As tempting as they will be to put that pepper in your mouth, give it a few minutes.

As mentioned, I ate these for 2 different meals! They are THAT GOOD! So sure, my opinion is one thing – but the real test was my sweet boy who I can’t get to try anything new.
