These sweet pepper “mummies,” stuffed with a gently spicy mix of Mexican chorizo, cream cheese, sharp cheddar, and cilantro, make for the quintessential fun Halloween party food
Bake in the oven. The dough should soften and take shape around the peppers. Cook until the dough is lightly toasted. After removing the peppers from the oven, lay them out on a white plate so they stand out. Use sour cream to dot the peppers with two round “eyeballs,” using black olive slivers for pupils, and serve.Dig into this fun Halloween food to fuel up for a night of trick-or-treating, leaving the candy to the kids. Be warned, however, these chorizo-and-chili-based mummies look sweet but they actually pack a little bit of kick. If you want to make them less spicy, look for a mild chorizo at the market.
