Bacon-Corn Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Filled with corn, salsa, green onions, mozzarella cheese and bacon, these grilled pepper halves are sure to liven up your next cookout. "They have a wonderful taste and give a fun twist to the usual corn on the cob,"—Mitzi Sentiff, Annapolis, Maryland.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 25 min. YIELD: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


  • 1. 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 18 in. x 12 in.). Fold foil around peppers and seal tightly.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender. Carefully open packets to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Return to the grill for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with additional salsa if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

"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."
