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!
If you want to get my favorite keto BUNDLE of meaty goodness from Pederson’s Farms, you get a great deal!

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Wrap with 2 thin slice of bacon to cover the entire egg. Secure with a toothpick.
- Place onto a baking sheet with rimmed edges (or bacon grease will get everywhere).
- Bake the eggs at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy.
- We served ours with Primal Kitchen Ranch dressing and Buffalo Sauce!
