In my family, dinner time is the most important meal of the day. It is understood that if you miss dinner, you had better have a damn good reason. The 9 of us look forward to enjoying the day spent outside and finishing it off with a good meal. Our favorites are often cooked on the barbeque. One that we have come to love more and more are hot pepper poppers.

CaveTools Hot Pepper Popper Coring Tool
If you are a regular hot pepper popper maker (say that three times fast) then you know how much fun it is to core and deseed a hot pepper. With this handy coring tool, it’s as simple as chopping the top and plunging the tool into the pepper. Now turn 360 degrees, and remove from the pepper. It’s like frickin MAGIC. The flesh, the seeds and the core, all come out trapped within the stainless steel tool. Boom. 24 peppers took me 10 min to decore and deseed.

Hot Pepper Poppers On The BBQ!
After you take the seeds out, you gotta rinse them. Mix up the filling and stuff those hot pepper poppers. Go ahead and get your hands dirty like Auntie Karen here! Can’t take the heat? No big deal. I also make these for the delicate tummies as well. Just use the sweet peppers in place of the hot ones.
Now it’s time to use your rack. ( I have been struggling with how to use the rack in a word play kind of way and I just can not without being way to NSFW!!) My tip? The bigger around the pepper is, the better it will fit. I came across two peppers that would not fit in the rack. But, I was thinking on my toes and used a sweet pepper to hold it in! Bam!
Tips For A Great Meal
I have played with this recipe lots and come to know only one thing to be 100% true when it comes to making hot pepper poppers, and they are:
- Cheese Please – Lots of cheese. We love the combo of cream cheese, cheddar, and pepper jack
- Don’t Skimp On The Bacon- I love to use thick cut peppered bacon, but if all you have is bits, then get it, girl. Bacon the hell out of it!
And, because I love a good printable, and I love a great recipe, even more, I have made you a print or download version, to keep and share! From our family to your family, ENJOY!
