STUFFED CHILLI PEPPERS

The Stuffed Romano Peppers available in Pizza Hut were an absolute favourite with hubby and my older son. Somehow the rice stuffing in it put me off. However I decided to try it with a mixed vegetable filling instead. You can use and variety of broad, long chillies.

This is what you’ll need

Long chilli peppers: 8 to 10

Onion: 2tbsp (chopped)

Sweetcorn: 2tbsp (I used the tinned ones)

Mushroom: 3 tbsp (chopped)

Grated cheese: 3tbsp (mozzarella or cheddar)

Chilli flakes: 1-2tsp

Garlic powder: 1/2tsp

Oil: 1tsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Wash the chillies. Slit them lengthwise into half and remove the seeds.

2. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions for one minute.

3. Add the mushrooms and fry for another minute.

4. Mix in the sweetcorn, garlic powder, chilli flakes, salt and pepper. Fry well for a couple of minutes.

5. Place the slit chillies on a baking tray. Spread a spoonful of the prepared mixture on each half.

6. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top.

7. Place in the oven and let it cook at 180deg C for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese melts.

8. Serve hot as a starter.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4
