Let's get grilling

1 Mix dipping sauce ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl and refrigerate.
2 Fry bacon, drain and let cool. Crumble bacon into cream cheese and add all additional ingredients. Mix together well. Place cream cheese mixture inside a quart-size GLAD® Food Storage Bag. Cut off one of the corners to make a pastry bag.
3 Cut off the top of the peppers approximately ¼ of an inch from the base of the stem and set tops aside. Stuff cream cheese mixture in top of peppers and replace caps. Wrap each pepper tightly in foil.
4 Place wrapped peppers on the grill grate directly over a hot bed of Kingsford® charcoal and turn frequently for 10–12 minutes. Remove from the grill, let cool, unwrap and serve with Hidden Valley® Ranch dipping sauce to cool down the spice from the peppers.
