Ingredients

Feta filling

  • 1 cup Greek feta crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 2 green chilies or jalapeños minced (optional)
  • 1/2 cup mixed herbs chopped ( parsley, oregano and cilantro)
  • 2 scallions minced
  • 3 tablespoons kalamata Olives minced
  • 1 tomato finely chopped (optional, **see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sumac spice (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Zaatar spice blend (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

For the peppers

  • 2 bags mini sweet bell peppers —2 lbs total, tops cut off and any seeds removed
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the broiler to high or the grill.
  2. On a baking sheet, lay the mini peppers in a single layer. They usually have no seeds, so once the tops are cut off they're ready for the filling.
  3. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and olive oil over the peppers and toss gently. Keep them always in a single layer.
  4. For the Feta filling: Mix all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.

  5. Use a teaspoon, place a teaspoon size filling inside each of the mini peppers. Make sure NOT to overfill the peppers.
  6. Any remaining feta mixture can be stored in the fridge for a week minimum—so long as it has no tomatoes **.
  7. Place the pan in the broiler over and broil for 5-7 minutes until peppers are charred and tender.
  8. If grilling, place the pepper on the grill and grill for 3 minutes per side.
  9. Serve right away or chill in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Recipe Notes

**If using tomatoes in the feta mixture, it can only last in the fridge for 2 days. If not, then it lasts at least a week.
