Spicy Stuffed Small Peppers

spicy stuffed small peppersThe bell peppers in our box this week were pretty small, less than 2 inches across. In the past, I had made a variation this recipe for Feta-Stuffed Mini Peppers. I decided to use the same filling, even though these peppers were a little bigger than “mini.” I thought I would need less filling than I did, so I made a small batch. Next time, I will make a full batch. (I have already adjusted the recipe; so if you follow the directions, you should have plenty of filling for 6 small peppers.)

    Wow, Ruth! I was wondering what to do with all those peppers in the greenhouse. Today is our older son’s birthday and these might go down well with the gang of young adults/ teens coming over to celebrate.
