Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Sweet Mini Peppers
I’m crazy about these sweet mini peppers, both to use in recipes and also just to eat as a snack! Have you tried them?
There are so many reasons I love these Sweet Mini Peppers, but when it’s party and football watching season and you’re trying to lose weight (or not gain any!) I’d recommend you skip the chips and use these crunchy sweet mini peppers as the perfect vehicle for delivering all kinds of tasty dips to your mouth. That’s one of the ways I love to eat them. And I love cutting them into rings and using them as a more interesting way to add peppers to salads.
I’ve been using these tasty peppers in recipes for about 5 years now, so I decided it’s time to officially add them to my list of Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, the list of products I buy over and over again and love enough to recommend them on the blog. Below are some of my suggestions for using sweet mini peppers. If you have other good ideas for using them, please share in the comments!

I found bags of sweet mini peppers at my local Aldi's discount supermarket. Thanks for the recipe ideas. I can't wait to try them! Happy cooking! ; )
Where do you buy these peppers?
The best place to get them is Costco, but I also find them at my regular grocery store. The ones at Costco are much cheaper though.
I have been popping onto your blog for a few weeks now.
Thought I'd share that these sweet peppers are a favorite of mine too.
They are a great carb-craving buster also.
I slice them up and put them on the edge tiny tea plate, and in the center well of the plate pour just a little basting oil, sprinkle with sea salt and dip and crunch. A really healthy, low carb and filling snack.
In the evening while cooking our main meal a glass of chilled Riesling, or white pinot goes great with it too!
I love eating these peppers with hummus! Great snack!
Beth, I LOVE that idea; thanks for sharing.
I love these peppers. A cooking instructor showed us how to do them easily on the grill and we always have a bag just for this purpose.
You just wash off, toss with a bit of olive oil and kosher salt and grill them whole. When you pick them up by the stem it just pops right off so you don't need to prep them in any way. So easy and so yummy!
Liana, I am drooling at the sound of that!
I like these sliced and slowly, slowly caramelized with some shallots and olive oil, then folded up in socca with crumbles of goat cheese and cracked black pepper.
Have not seen those around here, Kalyn, but if I ever do, I'll get some. I love sweet peppers! And, holy moly on all the recipe ideas to go with them. You are such a great resource for real food lovers! 🙂
These are so good. Anyone who hasn't tried them, get some soon!
I think I am addicted to these peppers. I love them in a salad and, if I am being honest, just grab and go, then snack, snack, snack!
Thanks for linking to my stuffed lil' ones. I had forgotten about those!
I love these peppers. Last Saturday I brought them to a football party a long with my skinny buffalo chicken dip. Which has FF Sour Cream, FF Cream Cheese, FF Ranch Dressing, shredded chicken, hot sauce, and low fat cheddar cheese. I love hot wings but the fried part isn’t great for my waist. So I found this dip but now I'm trying to steer clear of crackers and chips so the dip with the sweet mini bell peppers works great.
I've never seen those before!
Thank you for the recommendation! I see them often and never think about the possibilities that they offer! I will definitely consider trying them soon!
You have some really great ideas for meals here. thanks for posting such great information
Our Costco sells very similar peppers. I use them in eggs, in salads, and last night roasted up a bunch in the oven, stuck them in a paper bag to steam, peeled the skins off, chopped, and put into Toasted Quinoa Pilaf. (I didn't have bottled roasted peppers) It was so good! 🙂
Here's the recipe I used http://www.foodreference.com/html/quinoa-pilaf-730.html
I love these sweet peppers. I usually add them into stir fries for colour if I don't want it spicy. They taste verty delicious. I had just used it in fried rice the other day.
