Is Jalapeno Dip Keto Friendly?
But what about the crushed round crackers as the topping? Yep, it has a little bit, but its not a huge part of the dip, so portioned out correctly, you can still enjoy this dip with a tad bit of of the topping.
Alternatively, skip the panko bread crumbs and crushed crackers for a sprinkling of freshly shaved Parmesan Cheese. (This is the not the same as grated, so make sure its fresh)
