We loved these rosted peppers very much, thanks for this great recipe.<br/>For the preparation I used 3 medium peppers and it worked perfectly.<br/>The addition of capers and olives made this recipe a really delicious dish and gave a very good taste. <br/>We ate them warm, but I can imagine that they would be great cold as well. Next time I would like to try with mini-mini filled peppers (perhaps in different colors) and serve as appetizers.
My olives overpowered the peppers, I will try it again and use plain black olives. thanks for posting Made for the Spanish pepper challenge World Tour 8
Absolutely great appetizer / first course or even a light, leisurely lunch. Small red peppers where not available only large ones so I doubled the filling to make up for the size difference. Liked the flavor the wine gave the red peppers. Made with out the mint as I forgot to buy it. Loved every bite of this wonderful yummy dish. Thanks so much for the post.
