Sweet mini peppers and pimento cheese are a match made in snacking heaven! Serve these Pimento Cheese Stuffed Peppers at your next party or picnic and watch them disappear!
Slice each pepper lengthwise and stuff with pimento cheese. If you want to fancy it up, feel free to add some fresh chopped parsley or scallions as a tasty green garnish on top. Commence faceplant!
Recipe makes 25-30 mini pepper halves... though less if you keep eating them while you're making them. Uhhhh. not that I did that. Right. Let's just assume I didn't eat half before plating them.
This is a copycat of a zesty deli pimento cheese that stole my heart years ago. They used freshly chopped sweet red pepper in place of the pimentos with both fresh and pickled jalapeños to put a tasty spin on the classic. I fell in love and have been making it this way ever since! Feel free to use pimentos if preferred - anything goes!
Feel free to lighten things up by using half mayo - half plain greek yogurt! (2 TBSP of each)
