I love using fresh produce for snacks and appetizers. These little fiesta sweet peppers are perfect because they are colorful and they are not hot. That makes them perfect for adults and kids! The filling is made with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and some seasonings. That is it! Just give the filling a whirl in your food processor or mixer and fill those peppers.
Vegan Fiesta Stuffed Mini Peppers
How do you make something with cheese vegan? Very easily! We have made these in the past using vegan cream cheese and cheese shreds and they turn out just as beautifully! Just substitute the same amounts. It really works well. You can typically find both at your local grocery store or Whole Foods.
