Air Fryer: Cheesy Stuffed Baby Bell Peppers

I recently purchased an air fryer after months of consideration – and I love it! The cooking time for pretty much anything is cut significantly without sacrificing the taste. The ingredients are below:

  • 5-6 Mini Bell Peppers, cut in half and membranes/seeds removed
  • 1 cup of Ricotta cheese (I used skim)
  • 2-3 strips of bacon
  • 1/2 cup of Shredded pepper jack or cheddar cheese (half for filling and half for topper)
  • cilantro for garnish
  1. Lay the bacon in the air fryer and cook at 350 ‘F for 6-7 minutes or until crispy.
  2. Let the bacon cool on a paper towel and chop into small bits.
  3. In a bowl, combine the two cheeses and the bacon and mix together.
  4. Stuff it into the bell pepper halves, and lay in the air fryer. Top with shredded cheese and cook for 8 minutes (check at 4 minute mark) and 400 ‘F.
  5. Top with cilantro or an herb/garnish of your choice and voila!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
