Cheesy Bacon Mini Peppers
6 Mighty Mini Sweet Peppers sliced in half, seeds and membranes removed
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons green onions, sliced
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese + extra for topping
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
chopped cilantro for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, green onions, bacon, garlic powder, cheddar, and worcestershire sauce with an electric mixer until smooth.
