Bacon-Corn Stuffed Peppers
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Grill: 25 min.
- 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
- 1/3 cup salsa
- 6 green onions, chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, halved and seeded
- 1 medium sweet red pepper, halved and seeded
- 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- Additional salsa, optional
- In a large bowl, combine the corn, salsa and onions. Spoon into pepper halves. Place each stuffed pepper half on a piece of heavy-duty foil (about 18x12 in.). Fold foil around peppers and seal tightly.
- Grill, covered, over medium heat until peppers are crisp-tender, 25-30 minutes. Carefully open packets to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Return to the grill until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Serve with additional salsa if desired.

Great simple grilled peppers. They have great flavor and are a twist on the classic stuffed pepper.

Would I be able to cook these in the oven?

I shared this with my high school girl friends on a weekend retreat to the lake. It was a big hit. One suggestion - if you can use sweet corn in season - it will amaze your taste buds.
