There’s no faster way to get a party started than with these bacon-wrapped poppers. Make them ahead and bake just before serving. Even the hot pepper intolerant will love them.—Dawn Onuffer, Crestview, Florida

"I had to bake mine longer than what the recipe stated to get the bacon crispy, about 30 mins total. Love the sweet/spicy bacon with the creamy cheese mixture."

"I just made these for my family yesterday and and everyone loved them. I doubled the recipe and made the first batch exactly as written and then added 1 tablespoon real bacon bits to the cheese mixture in the 2nd batch. It's so easy to put together for a great appetizer. I plan to take 3 dozen to a dinner Christmas Eve. Great recipe!"

"I place my stuffed without Bacon wrapped peppers on a cookie sheet, freeze solid and then place in freezer zip lock bag for future use within three months. To bake: thaw peppers 7-10 minutes, wrap with Bacon or thin sliced deli-meats and bake as directed on a broiler pan since the peppers sit perfect in grooves without tilting or oozing melted cheese."

"Nice recipe"

"These were absolutely wonderful! I made them according to the recipe and they turned out great! I've made them several times and brought them to parties and every time I get requests for the recipe. It's also the appetizer I get the most requests to bring to a party. I didn't use chili powder but rather bought the dry packet of chili seasoning (as that was what I assumed the recipe was suggesting) and mixed that with the brown sugar. I think it adds a lot more depth of flavor than chili powder alone."

"These were great... used chili powder. Probably could have used less brown sugar, but other than that, they were a hit."
