Need a last minute appetizer? These Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers come together in under 15 minutes, but the bright colors and bold flavors are sure to impress your guests.
If you don't have the bacon pre-cooked this will take a bit longer, 4-5 minutes longer - tops. For fastest cooking chop up the raw bacon and quickly saute it in a small skillet. Then proceed with the rest of the recipe.
You can also prep these ahead of time and just pop the under the broiler right before serving.
