This finger food is great to pop into your mouth at a lively get together. They are small enough to pick up without any utensils, and they use the natural shape and depth of the pepper as its boat. You don’t have to carve into the pepper to fill it. For, it is already naturally curved.
These are simple and cute to make. You do not have to be a cooking prodigy to produce these in the kitchen. But, they look festive and creative at a party. They also add a pop of color in the arrangements, and will make your courses look more put together.
