Creamy Ranch Stuffed Banana Peppers with Bacon

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


8-10 servings

I received this recipe from a customer while working at my sister's produce market. The peppers can be made a day in advance, making them great for get-togethers. —Cathy Kidd, Medora, Indiana


  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 envelope ranch salad dressing mix
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 mild banana peppers (about 6 inches long), halved lengthwise and seeded


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, salad dressing mix, cheese and bacon until blended. Pipe or stuff into pepper halves. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Cut into 1-1/4-in. pieces.
Editor's Note: When cutting banana peppers, disposable gloves are recommended. Avoid touching your face.

    i'm sorry ... this was the wrong pepper recipe that I rated ... It looks great, but did not try this one!  The one I tried was "hot"

    I've made these twice, 2nd time I froze them and when ready to cook, sprinkled on oil and baked as directed. They have a definite punch of hot, very, very good!
