You can fill ’em with all kinds of stuff but I use spiced up cream cheese (a) because it looks good in the pepper’s face and (b) practically melts into a hot dip you can use for chips and the sliced pepper after its grilled. It’s a very simple appetizer that my grilling crew loves.

The only person who ended up hating it was me because it was all gone before I had a chance to fill up on the stuff.
