I ran across these at the grocery store the other day and had.to.have.them.
Luckily, they weren't too spendy either. SO CUTE!!!! They are small bell peppers - not spicey ones! I love stuffed jalapenos, but my family isn't too crazy about them. So these are a good compromise. And my little guy couldn't get enough of the peppers stuffed and unstuffed. He just loved them. I hope you will too.
Mini Stuffed Peppers
6 Mini Bell Peppers (orange, red, yellow)
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 TB Chopped Bacon
1 TB BBQ Sauce
Pepper to taste
Step 1: Rinse the peppers and cut in half lengthwise (be sure to leave the stem on - don't remove it). Remove the seeds.
Step 2: In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, bacon and bbq sauce. Taste. Add pepper as desired.
Step 3: With a small spoon, fill each mini bell pepper half with the cream cheese mixture and place on baking sheet.
Step 4: Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, until hot, bubbly and starting to brown on top.
Serve as an appetizer or side dish.
