Sweet Pepper Poppers ~ Perfect Small Bite Appetizer for Your Next Party! Only 7 ingredients and 30 Minutes!

Hi guys, it’s Cyndi from My Kitchen Craze again. Can you believe this year is almost over? I can’t. It’s going by way to fast and needs to slow down. Since we’re in the midst of family gatherings, holiday parties, football games and potlucks, I wanted to share a recipe with you that’s easy and delicious!

I didn’t create this recipe myself, but my girlfriend, Jessica did. You’ve likely heard me talk about her before, but in case you don’t remember let’s remind you. Her and I’ve been friends for roughly 17 years. I met her working at Hot Dog on a Stick and we’ve been friends ever since. We’ve gone through so much together and I know I can always count on her.

When I was brain storming ideas for this post, I was in San Diego visiting her for the weekend. Something you should know about Jessica is she’s an amazing cook. She’s one of those people that can throw things together and it always turn out amazing. So it’s only natural that I call her for inspiration from time to time.

So when she gave me the idea for these Sweet Pepper Poppers, I knew I had to make them. They sounded delicious and perfect for a holiday appetizer, football party or a potluck. I came home from my weekend in SD and made them immediately. And oh my gosh you guys, they turned out better than I could have imagined. They’re so good!

I ate 5 or 6 no problem and could have easily eaten more, hehe. To say they’re addicting is an understatement. Everyone’s going to devour them and ask you for the recipe and more.  I love that they have a little bit of heat to them too with the added pepper jack cheese. Totally takes them to the next level in my opinion.
