If you’ve grown tired of stuffed green and jalapeno peppers, it’s time to try these stuffed banana pepper recipes!

1. Italian Sausage Stuffed Banana Peppers 

If you’re in the mood for a hearty, bone-warming, dish, look no further! 

This recipe is brimming with bright flavors, and it’s super easy to assemble, even for a kitchen newbie. 

It’s also packed with cream cheese and a shredded Italian cheese blend. 

Plus, it’s gluten-free and low on carbs! Pair this recipe with a crisp garden salad, and you have an indulgent, filling dinner.

2. Stuffed Banana Peppers (Beef) 

I love stuffed green peppers as a classic go-to comfort food.

But it’s incredible how a simple pepper swap completely changes the flavors of this dish. 

The slightly sweet and delicate heat of banana peppers infuses the beef stuffing with Italian flavor.

Make this dish for a full meal, or pop it on a platter for a hearty appetizer at your next potluck. 

3. Three Meat Stuffed Italian Banana Peppers 

Think of this dish as an Italian take on enchiladas. They’re cheesy, spicy, and low-carb.

The secret to these meaty stuffed Italian banana peppers lies in the secret sauce.

The meaty mixture marries perfectly with the subtle heat from banana peppers. 

The banana pepper sauce resembles marinara but infuses herbs and added heat from red chili pepper flakes. 

4. Cheese Stuffed Banana Peppers 

This recipe has cheese and more cheese. And when you think there is too much cheese, keep going!

Each mild banana pepper serves as a vehicle for cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and plenty of rich spices. 

Wrap the banana peppers in a strip of smoky bacon and grill them until they are slightly charred. This brings out their rich flavor.

This tasty snack will be a huge hit at your next party.

5. Stuffed Banana Pepper Bites 

Whole stuffed banana peppers make big appetizers, but this recipe shrinks each serving. 

It cuts them into smaller snack-sized portions. It’s the perfect party appetizer when you want a little nibble instead of an entire banana pepper. 

Each bite-size piece has a bold filling of cream cheese and bright spices breaded and baked in the oven. 

They’re a little more tedious to assemble but well worth the extra effort!

6. Stuffed Banana Peppers (with Chorizo, Goat Cheese, Basil & Chives) 

These stuffed banana peppers don’t shy away from bold flavors. 

Spicy chorizo and tangy goat cheese are the perfect fillings for mild banana peppers. Just pray to the pepper gods you don’t pick up one of the rare hot ones!

They’re lightly breaded with panko breadcrumbs to help tame the heat and baked until golden and delicious in the oven.

They make the perfect appetizer when you want to impress at your next potluck!

7. Potato And Olive Stuffed Banana Peppers 

If you want to create filling stuffed peppers, bring on the potatoes!

This Mediterranean-inspired dish fuses bright flavors of olives, garlic, and herbs in a hash-like filling. They impart bold flavors without high-calorie ingredients like cheese or sausage. 

Even though they’re technically healthy and lower in calories doesn’t mean they’re low on flavor. 

The best part? They’re vegan, Paleo, and Whole30-approved! 

8. Bob’s Stuffed Banana Peppers 

I’m not sure who Bob is, but I know one thing: he has a killer stuffed banana pepper recipe! This dish is hearty and rustic and comes together in a flash.

It incorporates meaty and slightly spicy Italian sausages in a rich tomato base with cheese and breadcrumbs. 

Be warned, this main course is incredibly addictive! It makes quite a few stuffed peppers, but they disappear quickly.

If you make it once, you’ll be in high demand to make it again. 

9. Stuffed Banana Peppers (in Marinara Sauce) 

Stuffed banana peppers in a homemade marinara are the perfect weeknight dish when you want to keep carbs low. 

Making marinara is more time-consuming than grabbing a bottle, but it takes this dish to new heights! It only requires a few pantry staples and comes together quickly. 

Stuff your peppers with a spicy blend of Italian sausage and herbs, and pour your marinara and cheese on top. 

It bakes bubbly and delicious in the oven, and it’s the perfect main course or side for your next potluck. 

10. Bacon Wrapped Banana Peppers Stuffed with Sweet Potato 

Gather round, bacon lovers!

These bacon-wrapped banana peppers have it all. The bacon adds a touch of smoky, meaty flavors, while the sweet potatoes add sweetness.

They’re an indulgent snack without feeling overly heavy. This recipe uses simple, clean ingredients and is cheese-free. 

Yes, you can make an indulgent snack or appetizer that’s addictive and delicious without cheese!
