How to Make It
Preheat broiler to high.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well to combine.
Arrange pepper halves on a jelly-roll pan; divide filling among peppers. Broil 7 minutes or until peppers are tender and beginning to brown. Sprinkle with bacon.
Combine jelly and water in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave 30 seconds or until saucy. Drizzle evenly over peppers.
