Recipe by Tomorrow Never Knows
I created this recipe by just putting together ingredients that I like. A tasty Southwestern appetizer, sidedish, or even main course.

A big hit at a Mexican themed party I had. I used these baby sweet peppers (red, orange and yellow) that you can get at costco, so they were bite-size. I sliced them lengthwise and stuffed them. I used Mexican chese instead of chedder, but I think next time I'll use cheddar. I broiled them for 15 minutes. They were so beautiful...
