Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers – an easy appetizer that is so packed with flavor you may just ignore the main dish all together!
Can I start out today’s post by saying that any party that starts with an appetizer that involves cream cheese is a party I want to be at? One of my go-to appetizers is ridiculously easy – 1 block of cream cheese mixed with 4-5 fresh minced garlic cloves. Served warm or room temperature spread on crackers is about the best thing ever.
Well, these stuffed peppers are an upgrade of that particular cream cheese combination. Sweet, crunchy peppers stuffed with a robust garlic and herb cream cheese, they’ll be devoured in no time. And they’d be so perfect for any occasion because you can make them ahead of time. Using fresh garlic cloves gives these quite a kick, if you’d prefer a more muted version using jarred minced garlic should do the trick.

I’m always tempted to buy these peppers when I go shopping because they’re just so cute! But I never know what I’d do with all of them. These look amazing, and I’m definitely getting the peppers next time I go shopping!

I don’t have any dried Dill 🙁 Can I substitute it for something else or just leave it out?
You would be just fine leaving it out if you don’t have any.
