Mini sweet peppers filled with jalapeno cream cheese and topped with panko bread crumbs for an easy appetizer.


  • 10 mini sweet peppers
  • cup jalapeno cream cheese
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted


  • Lay the mini peppers on your preparation surface.
  • Slice off the front of each one, leaving a deep well and the stems intact.
  • Fill the remaining hole with jalapeno cream cheese for a kick of heat that's milder than traditional poppers.
  • Top with panko breadcrumbs moistened with melted butter and bake at 400 degrees until browned.
