Preparing the Peppers & Filling
Cheese stuffed peppers are really fun and easy to make! The first step is preparing the mini bell peppers for filling; you can also use jalapeno peppers if you want an extra kick of spiciness! Split the peppers in half and scoop out any seeds. Next, make the filling! Render the bacon until it’s nice and crispy, then chop into small bits. Combine the bacon with softened cream cheese, cheddar cheese and seasonings.
Stuffing & Baking
Fill the prepared peppers all the way to the top, leaving a heaping amount of cheese and bacon filling on top! I also like to sprinkle on more cheddar cheese and chopped chives over the top before baking the peppers. Bake the peppers until the cheese is nicely melted. NOTE: The stuffed peppers will be extremely hot when you remove them from the oven! Allow them to cool for at least 5 minutes before enjoying!
This easy appetizer recipe can be made ahead of time, too! Just stuff the peppers with the cheese and bacon mixture, then place onto a tray or plate, cover and refrigerate until ready to bake!
