Are you a big football fan? I have to admit that I’m not. However, I did grow up just outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin, home to some of the most die hard fans around. In fact, I remember driving around Green Bay (a city of about 100,000 people) many times on game day, and there would literally be like 3 cars on the road!

It’s impossible to grow up in Wisconsin without bleeding a little green and gold. So I do have to rep for the Packers whenever I have the chance, like today.

I’ve joined together with my favorite bloggers to bring you 64 awesome tailgating recipes! We’re each representing a different team (mine is the Packers, of course). Make sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for every mouthwatering recipe.

My tailgating recipe was inspired by these gorgeous mini bell peppers!

Mini Bell Peppers | Hello LIttle HomeDon’t those peppers look adorable and delicious? They’re also the perfect size for stuffing. Since one of my favorite game day treats is nachos, I immediately decided to make Mini Bell Pepper Nachos.

It was a very good decision, because these cuties are delicious!

I’m definitely someone who eats with my eyes first, and these nachos are gorgeous, as well as tasty!

You’re going to love this easy recipe, the highlight of which is a rich, cheesy filling. Since I’m representing the Packers, there had to be plenty of cheese, right?

Feel free to add more or less jalapenos to taste, leave them out all together, or replace them with milder canned green chilies. You’ll sprinkle on more cheese (of course) before baking the peppers until hot.

If you’re tailgating with these Mini Bell Pepper Nachos, you have a couple options. On a hot day, you could serve them cold. Trust me, I popped a few in my mouth before they even hit the oven, and they were delicious! You could also place the stuffed peppers in a wire grill basket (affiliate link), then cook them on a hot grill until heated through. I wouldn’t place the peppers directly on the grill, only because they’d fall through the grates.

After you remove the peppers from the oven or grill, they get sprinkled with tomatoes, avocado, fresh cilantro, and jalapeno slices. Add some salsa for dipping, and it’s time to eat.

Like most nachos, these Mini Bell Pepper Nachos are messy. So grab some napkins and dig in!
