Mini Pepper Tips & Tricks

  • Use creamy, not crumbly goat cheese! Make sure you choose a chevre goat cheese, since this kind is super cream.
  • Don’t over stuff! Make sure you fill the peppers just until each is filled to the edge. You don’t want to over-stuff and have too much cheese-to-pepper ratio!
  • Leave the stem on for easy eating. The stem is great to leave on because you can use that as a little handle when eating them. Serve with a little bowl for people to discard their stems!

Frequently Asked Questions

How else can I cook stuffed mini peppers?

Besides the oven, you can cook these stuffed peppers in the smoker or on the grill! In the smoker, cook on high for about 30 minutes until the cheese is bubbling. This will infuse a lovely smokey flavor. On the grill, cook at a medium heat for about 20 minutes!

How should I serve this stuffed peppers appetizer?

These peppers are best right out of the oven when they are warm and bubbly. I recommend serving them right away on a platter to prevent anyone getting burnt. You can serve alongside other appetizers like my sunburst pull apart bread, jalapeño hushpuppies, and some homemade mozz sticks!
