Equally good stuffed with cheese, chopped olives, or your favorite meat or seafood filling (think stuffed mushrooms, only with delectable peppers instead) or sprinkled on salads and sandwiches, these beautiful little guys will steal your heart.
Additionally, the Peppadew also makes a great topping on homemade pizza and burgers or it can be added to your favorite omelette or quiche recipes.
Typically available in jars and cans, Pepperdews were brought to America about a decade ago.
