Air Fryer Pepper Poppers Recipe

These pepper poppers made in an air fryer only need four ingredients and have all the flavours you love about poppers without the heat. Add some pepper Jack cheese to the mix if you like things a little spicy. At your next watch party, these will be the first things that people leave. 


– 1 bell pepper, any color – 8 ounces cream cheese, softened – 1 (1 ounce) packet ranch dip mix – 2 teaspoons real bacon bit



Follow the manufacturer's guidelines to heat up an air fryer to 390 degrees F (199 degrees C).

You can cut the bell pepper in half lengthwise. Get rid of the stem, the skin, and the seeds. Split each quarter in half along the long edge.

In a bowl, mix cream cheese, ranch dip mix, and bacon bits together until they are well mixed. With a spoon, put about 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of the mixture on each pepper slice.

In the air fryer basket, put the stuffed bell peppers. Take 8 to 10 minutes to cook until the cheese filling gets a little brown. As each air fryer is different, check after 8 minutes.
