Sometimes I find myself super snacky that I could eat everything on sight. This healthy low-carb snack is filling, super crunchy, and crazy delicious. Having a plate of these cream cheese stuffed peppers to snack is the best part of my day and helps me stay on track!

The filling for these cheese stuffed mini peppers is so easy and versatile. I choose to keep it simple, using just cream cheese, but you can customize it by adding everything you want, like green onions, chives, or crumbled-cooked bacon.

They remind me of those jalapeno poppers, but without that spicy taste and with a crispier, more refreshing crunch.

Ingredients For These Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers

How To Make Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers

You need to follow just a few simple steps to create the most flavorful Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers:

  1. Start by washing the peppers, then slice each pepper in half. 
  2. Using a small sharp knife remove any seeds and membranes from the little peppers. You can leave them in if you want since these are sweet peppers, not jalapeno ones.
  3. Combine the cream cheese and your favorite seasonings until you have a smooth mixture.
  4. Then all you have to do is fill the peppers, and sprinkle the Everything Bagel Seasoning.

Tips For Making The Best Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers

  1. Add some shredded cheddar cheese on the top to make them super cheesy.
  2. Meat lovers can add some finely crumbled sausage or chopped bacon to the mix.
  3. Chives or green onions would also work well in this dish. My family doesn’t like them, so I left them out.
  4. Allow the cream cheese to soften at room temperature before using. This will help the mixture to be creamier.
