Sweet Pepper Poppers

This is the yummiest recipe.  It's from my friend Marisa (but thanks to our mutual friend, Jen, for sharing the ingredient list with me over the phone while I stood in the produce section at the grocery store!)  Marisa, Jen, and I worked at camp together last summer, and had many a good conversation about food!

Wait until you see how pretty and festive this recipe is -- a nice little holiday appetizer!

Here's what you need:
Mini sweet peppers
8 oz. cream cheese
4 oz. feta cheese (I used tomato-basil, but you could use whatever flavor you prefer)
2 cloves garlic, crushed.


1. Put cheeses out to soften in a bowl, and wash peppers.


2. Remove cap, seeds and veins.  (A serrated fruit spoon is great for the seeds and veins!)


3. Mix cream cheese, feta cheese, and crushed garlic well.
4. Carefully spoon cheese mixture into peppers.


You've got yourself a beautiful little appetizer (or a really great, healthy snack to have tucked away in your refrigerator).


When I had filled all of the peppers, I still had at least half of the cheese mixture leftover. Hmmm, guess I'll have to pick up some more sweet peppers next time I'm at the grocery store!

And, for those of you who like to see a recipe all in one place, here's a re-cap:
