How To Make grilled pepper poppers

  • 1
    Mix dipping sauce ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl and refrigerate.
  • 2
    Crumble fried bacon into cream cheese and add all additional ingredients except peppers. Mix together well.
  • 3
    Place cream cheese mixture inside a quart size GLAD® food storage bag. Cut off one of the corners to make a pastry bag.
  • 4
    Cut off the top of the peppers approximately ¼ of an inch from the base of the stem and set tops aside. Stuff cream cheese mixture in top of peppers and replace caps.
  • 5
    Wrap each pepper tightly in foil.
  • 6
    Place wrapped peppers on the grill grate directly over a hot bed of Kingsford® charcoal and turn frequently for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the grill, let cool, unwrap and serve with Hidden Valley® Ranch dipping sauce to cool down the spice from the peppers.
