Stuffed chilli peppers

We used to make this stuffing for a melted cheese sandwich in our sandwich maker and decided to experiment a bit with it.  End result was a dish which took very little time to prep and was tasty and satisfying.   We have a few more ideas for stuffed pepper dishes which once tried and tested will be shared with you.


What do I need to make it?

  • 6 long green chillies (non spicy variety – substitute with small bell peppers or long red peppers if not available)
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 10 sun dried tomatoes chopped
  • 4 tbsp black olives chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 cup of grated cheese (mix of cheddar/mozzarella)
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How much will I make?

6 stuffed peppers (serves 2-3)

How do I make it?

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  Make a slit along the length of the pepper.   Place stuffing inside the cavity till full.   Bake in a pre heated oven for 40-45 minutes at 190 degree Centigrade till the peppers are cooked through.  Serve hot.

You could add or delete ingredients to mixture ie. add pepperoni or ham and make a nice melted cheese treat for the kids.
