  • This recipe uses a 16 ounce bag of the mini sweet peppers. The size of the peppers will determine how many you’ll get. Mine were on the larger side, so I made 16 poppers, total. You can easily double this recipe to make more for a large party.
  • Substitute 6 ounces of chive and onion, garlic and herb, spicy jalapeño, garden vegetable, or plain cream cheese for the Boursin cheese.
  • Use jalapeño peppers instead of sweet peppers.
  • To make ahead- assemble the peppers up to the shredded cheese step. Cover and refrigerate until needed and bake as directed.
  • Omit the bacon to make this vegetarian.
  • Substitute pepper jack, Monterey jack, or gouda cheese for the cheddar.

  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tbsp crushed red pepper or less to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Notes
