These cute little Stuffed Mini Peppers are so easy to prepare and a perfect addition to any appetizer tray. The bite-sized colorful red, yellow and orange mini’s are sliced in half and the cavities are filled with a mix of cream cheese, goat cheese, salmon and dill.
I am having some difficulty wrapping my mind around the fact that 2016 has come to an end. It has been a good year but there is certainly a lot of truth in the old saying, “the older we get the faster the time goes”.
I recently served this at one of our social events and they were well received, not a crumb was left on the plate. They are easy to prepare and can be served warm or at room temperature.
These little peppers are stuffed with a creamy, tangy mixture of cream cheese and goat cheese, some fresh herbs, smoked salmon and a touch of lime juice.
After they are stuffed they are popped into a 425°F. oven for a few minutes which gives the cheese a nice toasty top. The peppers have just enough bite to them to make you reach for another one.
