A couple of weeks ago our awesome neighbors invited us over for the first neighborhood BBQ of spring and made these delicious grilled stuffed peppers with a Jalapeno Artichoke Dip from Costco.
I was inspired and came home to make my own Jalapeno Artichoke Dip Stuffed Peppers with an easy, homemade dip recipe! I then proceeded to make these peppers three different times in two weeks, in Oklahoma, on Cinco De Mayo and to make and share on the blog.
They’re such an easy summer party appetizer to prep ahead of time and toss on the grill when guests begin to arrive!
Healthy Grilled Stuffed Peppers
To make these Healthy Grilled Stuffed Peppers, all you have to do is combine 8 ingredients in a small bowl to make the dip. Transfer the dip to a plastic bag, cut a hole in the corner and pipe the dip into the peppers. Grill the peppers and snack away!
Each stuffed pepper is only 31 calories, so you won’t feel guilty about snacking on a few of these delicious snacks while hanging at your BBQ!
How to Grill Stuffed Peppers
After making these grilled stuffed peppers a few times, I found the easiest way to grill them is either on non-stick foil directly on the grill or in a grill basket placed on the grill. Using the foil means that if any of the dip drips out of the peppers during grilling, clean up is a breeze!
