YEILD: 24 PIECES
READY IN: 30 MINS

INGREDIENTS:
12 mini bell peppers
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
½ cup grated cheddar cheese, plus more for topping
¼ cup sour cream
½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon TABASCO pepper sauce
4 slices bacon
2 tablespoons minced chives, plus more for topping

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Preheat oven to 400F.
2. Prepare the mini peppers first. Split each pepper in half lengthwise and use a small spoon to scoop out the white membrane and seeds. Arrange on a small baking dish and set aside.
3. Prepare the bacon. Render the bacon, drain on paper towels, then dice into small pieces once cooled.
4. Combine the remaining ingredients, along with diced bacon and Tabasco pepper sauce, in a large bowl. Use a large spoon to combine everything together until creamy and uniform.
5. Stuff each mini bell pepper half with the filling, over-filling the top. Sprinkle additional cheddar cheese and minced chives on top.
6. Bake in preheated oven at 400F for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Allow the stuffed peppers to cool for about 20 minutes before enjoying.

    These look like a quick and easy snack. I’m vegitarian and will use bacon made from mushrooms.
