Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers filled with cream cheese, spices and bacon.

We enjoy sweet peppers in so many ways: we love to use them as condiment while cooking, we eat them raw, stove cooked, baked, on the grill, with or without dips and stuffed.

We have done this recipe as is or cutting the sweet peppers half way and stuffing them laying down on a baking sheet. Either way they taste delicious and is pretty much the same process.
