Got my husband to eat sweet chili peppers…

It will be 22 years this Spring that I have been married to my Darling Husband, and for 22 years I have tried to get him to eat fresh peppers.  He will eat them roasted or hidden in soups, stews and casseroles but raw, not a chance.  So here I sit with these cute little sweet colorful chili peppers, I don’t want to cook them…what to do…what to do… then i hear a cooking show on the television…pimento cheese spread.  Hmmmm…I have red peppers from the Italian pack sitting on the counter…I could make that!

A quick charring under the broiler peel and dice, whip together the cheese spread and slice the little peppers in half, fill with pimento cheese spread and onto my deviled egg tray (love when I find another use for a specialty platter.) and I now have an appetizer!

I took them in and sat then down near my husband and before I knew it half the tray was gone!  YES!!!  I got my husband to eat sweet chili peppers!!!

  1. Hey there! Exceptional blog! I appreciate the method defined

  2. I never exactly follow a recipe…for this one, I added refried beans and sliced jalapeños to the food processor. I also just cut the tops off, scraped out the seeds and membranes and stuffed them with the modified pimento spread filling. Topped them off with a squirt of sriracha sauce. Nom, nom!

  3. Christine Heslop, the recipe is just below the pictures.
