Freshly cooked red peppers are wonderful, but these roasted red peppers in a jar are great when you don’t have time to roast your own! And they taste amazing in a wide variety of dishes and this post has links to my favorite recipes using them.

Kalyn's Kitchen Picks: Mount Olive Roasted Red Peppers found on

I love Roasted Red Peppers as a pantry ingredient. Of course you can roast your own red peppers, and the freshly roasted peppers are fantastic. But when you don’t have that much time, using red peppers from a jar is quick and the jarred peppers are amazingly flavorful. My normal grocery store carries two brands of jarred red peppers, but these Mount Olive Roasted Red Peppers are cheaper and so consistently good that they’re the ones I always reach for.

But no matter what brand of roasted red peppers your store carries, I hope you keep them in the pantry to add flavor to so many dishes. And that’s why I’m adding roasted red peppers to my list of Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I rave about products that I love enough that I’d happily buy them over and over.

Just in case you’re looking at that jar and wondering how I’d use this type of roasted red pepper, here are some recipes from the blog that use them.

Everything I feature for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks is a product I’ve used myself and would happily buy over and over again. (Mount Olive has never sent me any red peppers, and they have no idea I’m writing about their product.)
