Grilled Pepper Poppers

I got this recipe from Safeway on one those free recipes stand. I made it for a BBQ get-together with Polly and family a couple weeks ago. It is a great cheesy appetizer — not to mention it being so colourful.

The filling in the sweet peppers consists of chopped tomatoes, chopped red onion, chopped fresh cilantro, shredded cheese and salt to taste.


The peppers are grilled over medium heat for 5 minutes or so until the peppers blistered and slightly charred on the bottoms.


The cheese in the peppers would have melted when they are ready.


Transfer the peppers to a clean platter with a wide spatula. Serve the peppers with a teaspoon of sour cream over the hot peppers.

    That looks so good and EASY! I am so tired of hollowing out zucchini and eggplants are definitely out around here right now. This looks so fresh and pretty and tasty!

    Hi Lynn and Tarrant: I am glad you find that appealing too. When I first saw that and read how easy the instructions where, I simply had to try it. This is a keeper for sure.
