Looking for a healthy-ish appetizer that requires no baking and is completely delicious? Try these Bacon Ranch Mini Pepper Poppers! They are completely no-guilt and even with the bacon they’re only 52 calories each, so how can you resist? If you use pre-cooked bacon, this recipe becomes one that is totally no-cook!

The best part is that raw bell peppers pack in tons of vitamins, so you get the best of both worlds. Bell Peppers are super rich in Vitamin C . A half-cup has over 300% of what we need each day and their also a pretty good source of Vitamin A and B-6.

For serving the mini peppers fit perfectly into my Deviled Egg Platter, so that’s what I used. No harm in getting more mileage out of serving pieces you don’t use that often!

For this recipe, I topped each one with a small piece of bacon, but the ranch cream cheese filling has enough flavor that you could serve them plain. Feeling expansive…use them as little ranch dip cups and add a few tortilla chips on top!
