We had a little family Olympic watching party, complete with all finger foods. My favorite were some poppers I made with little sweet peppers.
Our store has been selling these bags of sweet multi-colored peppers, and I eat them all the time. At another time during the summer, I put some cream cheese dip inside a raw pepper and thought it was so yummy, it made me want to try to make some sweet poppers that were also low(er) carb.
So, here is how I did it.
First, I mixed 4 oz of cream cheese with some spices. I don't always measure, so my best guess is about 1/8-1/4 teaspoon each of: turmeric, cayenne pepper, cumin, black pepper and onion powder. 1 large clove of garlic and 1/2 teaspoon of chives.
I washed the peppers, then made a small cut in each pepper and put a spoonful of the mixture inside.
Take a slice of raw bacon, stick one end inside the pepper where the cut is, and wrap it around the pepper.
Grill until the bacon is fully cooked, and enjoy!
