mini pepper poppers

mini pepper poppers
say that 10 times fast

aren't these the cutest mini sweet peppers you ever did see
i think so - not hot but sweet as can be

filled with a "bacon bit" sourcream & pineapple mixture
topped with a bit of daiya
these were totally big on game day
almost as big as the patriots going to the super bowl

i only know that because of all the facebook chatter

justin and i were too busy playing buzz quiz on ps3
with me beating him on all the fashion & food questions
but him winning the game
winner winner chicken dinner

these little poppers are really too easy
5 ingredients
a bit of time in the oven
and you have yourself a winner

**sometimes i wonder about myself- that is cream cheese, not sour cream**

cream cheese is mixed with veggie bacon bits, pineapple salsa & cilantro

the peppers are cut in half - make as little or as much as you please
this is a very adaptable recipe
easy going to say the least

stuff your peppers - that sounds mean
lets start over
fill your peppers with the the salsa mixture
top with daiya cheese - i was rather fond of the pepper jack daiya
some were left in all their nakedness glory

others were topped with cow cheese...yes, sad to say - justin has yet to become a daiya convert
we are working on that

baked in the oven for about 15 minutes
just until the cheese is bubbly & melty
topped with a bit of cilantro
 
viola - you have yourself an amazing game day snack
without even breaking a sweat

    1. The mini peppers are super cute, therefore loads more fun to eat in my book :-) I'm not sure about Foodbuzz, I haven't been on this weekend but will check it out today to see if I have any hiccups

    1. mmmm a raw version would be fantastic - maybe some version of nut cheese with fresh salsa; let me know if you experiment and how it turns out!

      I made the BEST green juice over the weekend: Dino Kale, asian pear, apples, broccoli & blueberris - ah-mazing!!
