A friend of mine taught me how to make these peppers a few years ago. My husband loves these peppers! He can't BBQ without throwing some of these on the grill first, so he has something to snack on while he BBQ's.


  1. Soak 10 toothpicks in a small bowl of water (Soaking the toothpicks in water help prevent them from burning over the flame).
  2. Wash peppers.
  3. Make one slice on each pepper, from stem to tip.
  4. Seed each pepper, rinse, and pat dry.
  5. Stuff each pepper with a spoonful of cream cheese.
  6. Wrap each pepper with a 1/2 strip of bacon and secure with a wet toothpick.
  7. Grill for a few minutes on each side until bacon is crisp.

Simplicity appears to be the best recipe. Have looked for a long time and now I have found what I consider the best...thank you ...

I make these all the time for my guests. They go fast! I have a "chili grill" that I cook them on. Go to I think my grill holds 28 peppers. Have made using veggie cream cheese too. Use a piping bag (or a baggie with the corner cut off will do) and pipe the cream cheese into the pepper. Try these!
