I’ve been growing these in a container in the patio garden. They are green bell peppers in all but name – I’m not sure what the tag said. I managed to stuff about a tablespoon or so of my Italian beef/rice filler into each one.They are cute as can be! Here they are after blanching.I went with cooked and crumbled Italian beef mixed with rice and some stewed tomatoes. Actually, I started with the stewed tomatoes – Mrs J delivered a dozen or so ripe ones that I de-skinned and boiled down with onion and jalapeno peppers. We had a regular sized green pepper in the fridge so I made sure to make enough stuffing for it, too.Mozzarella made the perfect topping, I cooked them side by side in the toaster oven, the taller pepper browning better than the minis. Since the filling was already cooked, they just needed enough time in the 375 degree oven to make the peppers tender.Each one was two bites and gone – note that they have relatively thick skins compared to other small peppers.
