If you’re ready to get your Pau Hana (after work fun time) started, these Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mini Peppers are the yummiest, easiest pupu (appetizer) ever!
Did you like the Hawaiian words I used there? Hawaii is so much apart of me now, I even speak some of the language.
I am obsessed with the little sweet peppers that you can buy in a bag from the store. Every time I make a Costco run, I pick up one of those big bags full of them and use them for all kinds of stuff.
They’re great in salads, sliced up to dip in hummus, chopped for all kinds of dinner recipes, and NOW…. you can stuff them with cheesy bacon goodness, too!
These Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Peppers are sooooo good. The filling is made with two kinds of cheese, bacon, green onions, Worcestershire sauce, and a little garlic powder.
Fill them up, bake them in the oven, then devour!
This recipe will make a dozen stuffed peppers, so if you’re feeding a crowd and want more than that, just double the recipe. Enjoy and have a great weekend, y’all!

Took to Easter dinner as one of the appetizers. They were gone in minutes. Easy tasty and asked to bring to our Kentucky Derby party. I love I can fill early and then pop it in the oven. Warning! They go fast so make extra!
I soooo love peppers and bacon! Having them together is heaven!
Yum I am loving this recipe for cinco de mayo what a great idea!
These are by far my sons favorite items I make!!
These look incredible! I love how cheesy they came out and the flavor is perfect. So tasty!
These look amazing! I tend to love all things with bacon and cheese.
Perfect for a potluck or as a dinner party appetizer. Someone suggested chopped jalapeños. I think I may try that as well! They are even good without baking. (I snuck some as I was preparing!) Thanks for the recipe.
Just made these with the abundance of mini sweet peppers from our garden, Delicious! I added chopped jalapeño for kick. Will make again.
Do you know if these freeze well? I have peppers that need to be used now but, would like to keep them in the freezer until ready to use.
I have not tried to freeze these, but I think they would be fine!
Can you make these ahead and warm up?
I will be making these today! Have you tried them in an Air Fryer? I think I’ll try a couple as a test😊
I did them in the air fryer! Very good!
How long and what temp in the air fryer??
This absolutely seems like my kind of treat! Love the presentation.
I love making stuffed peppers for my boys. But never tried with bacon. What a great idea! I will definitely try this.
This looks so yummy, I need to try them for a dinner idea
You had me at bacon! haha. My kids love snacking on those little peppers so obviously stuffing them was a huge hit!
I have sweet peppers to cook in the kitchen so using some vegan ingredients I would give this recipe a go because it looks so good.
I have made these soooo many times and they’re amazing. They make the best appetizer and are always loved by all. I have made them with regular or turkey bacon and both are delicious!
These are delicious and kid friendly food! My daughter request this often.
We were at our cabin and I didn’t have green onions on hand, so I used a tub of Philadelphia Cream Cheese Chive and Onion flavored in place of the Cream Cheese and Onions. That was the only substitution and a little quicker in my opinion. They are so good! Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely try more of your recipes.
I have made these four different times for different guests and every time someone asks me for the recipe. I served them at my bookclub, who are a bunch of foodies and they all took the recipe home.
One thing to note and maybe it’s just that my mini peppers are smaller but I find this recipe will stuff 12 mini peppers which makes 24 peppers.
For labor saving measures, I make a double recipe. The stuffing for the peppers will last several days in the fridge.
These little stuffed peppers are the perfect thing for our game day snacking… You can never go wrong with BACON.
The perfect bite! So tasty!
Doubling recipe for Super Bowl Sunday. Stuffing half with cream cheese and half with Pimento cheese.
These look so tasty! Such a good way to use mini rainbow peppers. I always buy a bag and forget about them, so a recipe like this comes in handy! Can’t wait to try.
I’m not a big fan of plain peppers but when you stuff them full of all this goodness I just can’t get enough! So good!
These are fantastic. Addictive to say the least. I mean… cream cheese, bacon, peppers, chives, worcestershire, all of the greats. Thank you for sharing!
These were very good. I really liked that I could prep them ahead and then just slide them in the oven for 10-12 minutes when it was close to time to serve. They paired wonderfully with an Albarino. The filling made more than enough to fill my tiny peppers. So, bonus! I made more stuffed peppers. Still, my guests scarfed down every last one of them.
