  • Add cream cheese and cheddar cheese; mix well.

  • Cut peppers lengthwise in half; discard seeds. Fill each pepper with a generous portion of sausage mixture; press lightly into peppers to secure. (Filling should mound slightly above top edges of peppers.)

  • Place on lightly greased baking sheet or in broiler pan.

  • Bake 10 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender and filling is lightly browned.

  • Baking the poppers on the indented top of a broiler pan will help to hold the peppers upright and prevent the filling from spilling out.
