Sweet Pepper Poppers

Once you pop you just can't stop.

Peter Piper picked a peck of piquante pepper party poppers... Go ahead and try saying that five times fast!

Level: Easy
Serves: Serves 12


  • 24 pine nuts
  • 24 jarred red sweet piquante peppers (such as Peppadew), rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 c. hummus
  • 1 tsp. chopped chives


  1. Toast nuts in a skillet over medium heat until golden, 2 min. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Cut a very thin slice from bottom of each pepper so it stands without rolling.
  3. Fill a resealable plastic bag with hummus. Snip one corner, and pipe hummus into peppers. Top each pepper with a pine nut, and sprinkle with chives.
