Peter Peppers - yes this is their actual name, are considered rare and are grown in personal gardens.
My parents shared a few with me to sample and boy howdy do they pack a punch of heat!
Once the seeds are removed they have a wonderful flavor...however it did take an hour for my mouth to stop burning and my eyes to quit watering after just taking a bite out of it whole.
They should definitely come with a warning label!!

How to Make Peter Pepper Poppers

Step-by-Step

  • 1NOTE: Some folks have a reaction to handling hot peppers. Just to be on the safe side - use surgical gloves while seeding. Thanks for the suggestion Albert! (:
  • 2Preheat oven to 350.
  • 3Cut peppers in half and remove ALL seeds, and trim off as much of the veins as possible - they can contribute substantial heat!
  • 4In a medium bowl, combine cheeses, bell pepprs, cream cheese and bacon. Stir until well combined.
  • 5Add filling to inside of pepper halves. I used a pastry bag, but you can cut the end off a ziplock bag to pipe the filling in to the peppers.
  • 6Bake poppers for about 5 minutes until cheese has melted. Enjoy!
