Spicy Bacon Wrapped Sweet Peppers are an easy appetizer to make when entertaining for the holidays. Everyone will love the combination of flavors. This post brought to you by Texas Pete. All opinions are 100% mine.
Please tell me I am not the only one who loves appetizers. There are times when I order appetizers as my meal at restaurants.
We recently went out to eat with a big group of friends and the mouthwatering appetizers completely outshined the main dishes! I like it when appetizers have a lot of flavor, some spice and of course, bacon is always a bonus.
Today I want to share a recipe for Spicy Bacon Wrapped Sweet Peppers that is perfect for the entertaining. The sweet peppers add flavor and beautiful color to the dish.
Inside is a creamy mixture of Texas Pete Hot Sauce, cream cheese, and ranch dressing! Then, everything is wrapped in a piece of crunchy bacon. The combination is fantastic.
To make this appetizer, you will need mini sweet peppers, cream cheese, fully cooked bacon, powdered ranch seasoning and Texas Pete Hot Sauce.
How To Make Spicy Bacon Wrapped Sweet Peppers
Beat the softened cream cheese until smooth.
Add the hot sauce and the powdered ranch dressing.
Mix until well blended.
Cut the sweet peppers in half and fill them with the cream cheese mixture.
Wrap each pepper with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Bake at 350˚F for 25-30 minutes on a broiler pan.
Remove the toothpicks and serve immediately.
Everyone will love the combination of the creamy filling with hot sauce, sweet peppers, and bacon!
