Buffalo Hummus Stuffed Sweet Pepper Poppers Recipe

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces plain hummus: Store-bought or homemade
  • 1/4 cup buffalo wing sauce: Use your favorite brand (e.g., Frank’s). Adjust for desired heat level.
  • 2 large green onions (scallions), chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese: (Optional, but adds a delicious salty bite)
  • Pinch cayenne pepper: (Optional, for extra spice)
  • 1 pound mini sweet peppers: (Various colors for a fun presentation)

Instructions

1. Prep the peppers: Wash and dry the mini sweet peppers. Cut off the tops near the stem with a sharp knife. Carefully remove the seeds and inner membranes.

2. Make the filling: In a medium bowl, combine the hummus and buffalo wing sauce. Mix until thoroughly blended. Stir in the chopped green onions, feta cheese (if using), and a pinch of cayenne pepper (if desired).

3. Fill the peppers: Use a small spoon or a piping bag to generously fill each pepper with the buffalo hummus mixture.

4. Chill: Refrigerate the stuffed peppers for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

5. Serve: Serve chilled as a refreshing and flavorful appetizer.

Tips

  • Hummus variations: Experiment with different flavored hummus varieties, like roasted red pepper or garlic hummus, for unique twists.
  • Make ahead: You can prepare the filling and stuff the peppers a day in advance. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Garnish: Sprinkle with additional feta, a drizzle of buffalo sauce, or fresh chopped herbs like chives before serving for an extra touch.
