  • 1/2 pound thick cut bacon
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Beer
  • 1/4 cup white onion chopped
  • 1/4 cup more or less Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup more or less mozzarella cheese, shredded


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and add the bacon.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes until crisp, turning once. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  • Cut peppers in half vertically. Remove any seeds.
  • Place peppers on a baking dish and fill the halves with the beer. Cover with foil and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until tender.
  • Meanwhile, crumble the bacon into a bowl and add the onion and cheeses.
  • Uncover the peppers and pour off any remaining beer. Fill cavities with the bacon mixture and return to the oven, uncovered, until the cheese is melted.
