Frozen Bell Peppers (For Recipes)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Chef PotPie

I use a lot of bell peppers when I cook, and I like to use all different colors, but those yellow and orange babies get mighty pricey where I live, so when they go on sale I buy up a few of every color and they're right at my fingertips whenever I need them! (These are for use in cooking, not for fresh eating).

Thank you for posting. I cut some peppers in half to use for stuffed peppers, some in long strips for use in stir fry recipes. I placed the cut up peppers on a cookie sheet, then when they were frozen, placed them in freezer bags. They do not stick together when frozen in this manner. Thanks again for this great idea.
