Cream Cheese Stuffed Roasted Peppers - A Quick Snack

A friend gave me some red peppers. They looked like tiny bell peppers but with a tiny bit more heat. The same friend had made these stuffed jalapeno peppers for a party and that is what I decided I'd make with those peppers. If you are a cheese lover this is a must try. The stuffing could be minced chicken or spiced potatoes. I used cream cheese but any shredded will work perfectly. Any stuffing of choice will work really.

These are so very easy to put together and are perfect as a quick appetizer or an evening snack. I used some salsa flavored cream cheese - yes that was new flavor in cheese for me as well.

Cream Cheese Stuffed Roasted Peppers
Preparation Time:15 minutes
Cooking Time:25 minutes
  1. 10-12 Jalapeno or any not too spicy peppers
  2. Cream Cheese of Choice - I used Salsa flavored Cream Cheese
  3. 1 -2 tsp of Olive Oil

  1. Slit the peppers in half and remove the stems and ribs (these are the spicy parts) or just cut the top off and scoop out seeds and rubs.
  2. Fill the halves of the pepper or the whole pepper with cheese or any filling you prefer.
  3. I used a toaster oven for broiling. If using conventional oven use the middle rack otherwise the peppers and the cheese will burn.
  4. Place the peppers on a foil lined and greased tray. Set the peppers with the cheese side on top, drizzle lightly with olive oil. Broil for about 8 minutes. Once the cheese is broiled it hardens up a little bit and ready for the next step. The next step is purely optional, if you like the pepper to be slightly more roasted proceed else stop here.
  5. Turn to the other side and broil the pepper side for another 6-8 minutes till it starts to blacken a little bit.

Cool and ready to eat. Some of these peppers are spicier than the others but the cream cheese in them mitigates the heat.
