Looking for a simple finger food or snack? Of course, I love a good jalapeño popper as much as the next foodie, but mini bell peppers are a wonderful alternative for those not wanting as much spice and, on top of that, they taste really awesome.

I came across this recipe almost on accident -- My grocery store had a huge bag of mini bell peppers on sale and, if you know me, you know I couldn't resist. My family and I couldn't eat them as fast as we wanted to so, not wanting to have them go to waste, a came up with this quick recipe and, sure enough, the peppers were gone quicker than anticipated.

I hope you like this recipe as much as I do!
