While not quite as exceptional as breaded versions, in my opinion, these are still excellent as a low carb appetizer. Besides, if you have trouble with the other type from its breading falling off, you will like these a LOT! Great served with melted red jalapeno jelly to dip these in. Of course, that's not low carb.

Not much flavor. Try doing them on the grill to give them some smoke taste.
