Cajun Cream Cheese Stuffed Anaheim Peppers

Anaheim peppers offer an alternative to grilled jalapeno poppers for those looking for less of a kick in the spice department. These are just as easy to make as jalapeno poppers.

Cajun Cream Cheese Stuffed Anaheim Peppers


  • 5 Anaheim peppers, stemmed and cored ( or more as needed, depending on the size)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

Cooking Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine cheeses with Cajun seasoning. Mix well.
  2. Stuff Anaheims with cheese mixture.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  4. Wrap Anaheim peppers in aluminum foil and grill 6-8 minutes, or until nicely charred. Alternatively, you can broil them not too close to the heat source about 15 minutes, until they begin to char.
  5. Serve.

    hello, when you said to wrap in foil, do you mean wrap individually?

    REPLY: Sharon, you can wrap them all together and grill. You can skip the foil and just grill them, too, but watch to make sure the filling doesn't spill out. -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.

    Can these be frozen, then reheated later? Or will they go bad? I have a million peppers someone gave me and I do not want them to waste.

    Thank you

    REPLY: Patrice, yes, you can freeze these for a couple months. Just be sure to wrap them up neatly and airtight. -- Mike from Chili Pepper Madness.
