This was wonderful, I used some Colby and Jack cheese along with the Cheddar and was great. Was doing outside entertaining so used the grill to cook them and it worked perfect and added a smoky flavor to them.

These were awesome! My husband loved them and said to definitely keep this recipe. We used the banana peppers,. jalapeno pepper and tomato from our garden so that made it an even better recipe. Our peppers were not that large so I made a larger quantity and just used one strip of bacon on each.
