Stuffed Sweet Mini-Peppers

At a food show last spring, a colorful display caught my eye. At first glance, I thought I was seeing mounds of fresh chilies. Closer inspection brought a sweet surprise: The shiny, bright red, yellow, and orange vegetables weren't chilies at all ― they were bell-type peppers, similar in shape to fresh jalapeño chilies (with very few seeds). From 2 to 4 inches long, they make two or three bites ― an ideal size for appetizers and salads. Stuffed with a rice filling and baked, they make a handsome, delectable garnish around a holiday bird or roast.

Master's Touch grows the little peppers in Mexico and Florida, labels them VineSweet Mini-Peppers, and distributes them year-round to chain supermarkets and warehouse stores such as Costco.
