  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Grill: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 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.

    Easy to make, used canned corn. Next time I'll use larger peppers, less scallions, add mushrooms and more cheese to mix in the filling as well as on top.

    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.
