How To Make spicy sweet mini pepper poppers

  • 1
    Remove casing from chicken sausage and cook most of the way smashing scrambling it up into very small pieces. Let cool.
  • 2
    Cut the tops off the peppers length wise and remove seeds. Fill peppers with filling mix pressing down to fill up end and sides.
  • 3
    Place habanero's (stems removed) in a food processor and mince.
  • 4
    Once sausage is cool add all ingredients EXCEPT bacon in a mixing bowl, using a paddle on your stand mixer, mix until ingredients are well combined. You can also mix by hand.
  • 5
    Cut bacon in half, using one half of a strip wrap around peppers.
  • 6
    Place peppers on a lined baking sheet, (I use a silpat but you can use parchment paper) in 375º oven for 30 mins on. middle/low rack and bake for 30 min. Move baking sheet to upper middle rack and back 10-15 min longer until bacon is browned. These would also be great grilled.

    Allow to cool! Enjoy a spicy yummy appetizer or make it a reduced carb meal.
