  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to broil.
  • Boil a large pot of water on the stove on high-heat.

  • Add the diced tomatoes, 1/2 of the shredded cheese, and the cooked bacon to the skillet. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  • Place the peppers in a 9x13 baking dish. Load the peppers with the bacon, mushroom, and cheese mixture.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese throughout each pepper.
  • Broil the peppers for 3-5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
