I have been seeing these cute little mini peppers around the web for a while now so when I came across them in the grocery store for the first time I picked some up immediately. Of course I knew what I was going to use those mini peppers in first, these mini pepper nachos! I kept the mini pepper nachos nice and simple, stuffing them with some nice and healthy ingredients including corn, black beans, pico de gallo and avocado before covering them in plenty of ooey gooey melted cheese! The mini sweet bell peppers work amazingly well in nacho form, providing a nice sweet base that is perfectly sized for finger food! These mini pepper nachos are sure to please at your next party and given how healthy they are, there will be no regrets!
A dab of sour cream never hurts!

These are such a perfect football watching food! And so much better for you than regular nachos!
I made my own version of this tonight for dinner. I didn't have mini peppers and they aren't sold at my store. I did have two bags of frozen, fresh red pepper strips in my freezer. So, I spread out my pepper strips on some foil in a pan, covered with fajita chicken meat, pico de gallo, cheese and bacon pieces. Freakin good. I eat this like a casserole and topped this with fresh guacamole. Instead of rice, I had a side of quinoa. Next time though, I'll make this with fresh pepper halves without freezing them.
Those are amazing looking! Perfect for football day munchies 🙂
I just made these for dinner tonight and they were amazing!!! Only difference is I used cojita Mexican cheese instead. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

I tried this recipie for a barbeque party last night and it was such a hit.
I made the peppers on an aluminiun tray on the barbeque.
I was wondering what a serving size is? Tjay sounds fantastic. I will diffenently be trying these.
kpmn27: 1 serving is approximately 1/2 pound

What a great finger food! But I can easily see myself constantly going back for more…
Also, I've shared this on my Super Bowl Recipe Roundup: http://karylskulinarykrusade.com/recipe-roundup-super-bowl/
I made these last night for the super bowl. Only change I’d make is cooking the peppers (either first or baking the whole thing rather than just putting it under the broiler). Making them more like traditional stuffed peppers but mini peppers and nacho stuffing
