Stuffed Banana Peppers+

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 large banana peppers
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (could use less)
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, diced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 to 16 bacon slices (takes more than one package if you really want to fully wrap peppers)
  • could add bread crumbs to soak up some of the cheese?

How to Make It

Pre-step: works well to partially cook the bacon before wrapping the peppers

Step 1

Cut a slit lengthwise in each banana pepper, cutting to, but not through, other side. Remove seeds.

Step 2

Combine cheese and next 6 ingredients. Spoon mixture evenly into each pepper, and wrap each with 2 bacon slices; secure with wooden picks. Place peppers on a rack in a broiler pan.

Step 3

Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden.
