Absolutely fantastic! Easy to make and what a hit they were. Made them for the first time last week and DH asked for them again tonight. I followed the recipe exactly except for substituting regular chili powder for the Ancho Chili, as I did not have any on hand. Awesome! Thanks for posting!
The mini bells in my garden were VERY productive this year and I was happy to find this recipe! I sliced them in half (top to bottom) thinking they would make nice "cups" to hold the cheese mix without too much spilling out as it melted. And it worked! Giving four stars because although the flavor was great, I think I will add a little cream cheese to the mix next time - they weren't quite as creamy as I was hoping for. Still super yummy and not a single one left!
These are so good. I tried baking the peppers for about ten minutes in advance (during the time I was getting the cheese ready). I thought that might help avoid the leaking cheese. But, alas, I had some of the cheese melt out as well. It didn't really matter though. It was very simple to push it in with a spoon and it stayed in without too much prompting. Most importantly, these are delicious. I bought everything to make it again today... except the peppers! I will make the extra trip to get them. This recipe is worth it. Thanks for posting!
Great success with coworkers and family. This recipe peaked my interest but we had never purchased mini bell peppers before or really noticed if available here. So you can imagine my surprise when I found a 2lb pkg in my fridge the day after my DH did groceries and I hadn't even mentioned this recipe. He also bought some garlic feta along with the regular stuff so I used 1/2 cup garlic feta plus 1 cup regular and omitted the salt. I was dismayed when I pulled the pan out of the oven to find the cheese covered the base of the pan but it hadn't ALL leaked out of them as it looked and was very quick and easy to push back inside each pepper. I used asaigo cheese as I always sub for the parm cheese due to cost. I served them cold after cooking the 45 mins since I was at work. Handing out the recipe tonite when I go into work as many requests.
