Flash back to last week: I’m making a ton of food for a dinner party and trying to use up all my fresh produce in the process before I go out of town.

As I’ve said before, I tend to over-buy produce so this was a lofty goal.

My original idea was to make these mini sweet peppers stuffed with cream cheese, and make them like jalapeno poppers. But sweet pepper poppers.

Say that 5 times fast.

Then I realized my cream cheese was bad.

Scratch the sweet pepper popper idea.

Since I was trying to get through the cooking day without running to the store (and I succeeded!) I had to change course.

I decided to combine the sweet pepper idea with another appetizer I was planning on making, which happened to be a brie and sun-dried tomato dip.

3-ingredient finger food for the win!

Cut off the tops of your sweet peppers, and cut in half lengthwise.

I actually left some peppers uncut and stuffed them that way, but it’s not as pretty.

Remove seeds.

Thin slices of brie cheese will fit in the grooves of the sweet peppers.

I sprinkled the sun-dried tomatoes on after baking, but if you put them on top of the cheese before baking they will stick better!

Sun dried tomatoes were a total impulse buy at my last Trader Joe’s run. This may have been the first time ever to buy that item. #meanttobe

I make these with the large long points peppers, baby plum tomatoes. Not tried with sundried but I am going to now. I love sundried tomatoes !! I usually mix in some Italian herbs and use vegan brie and occasionally if I have some stale bread, I'll blitz it and add some breadcrumbs for another TEXTURE They simply must be served on a bed of spinach with balsamic vinegar and scattered with fresh basil leaves. YUMMY !!!

This is a fantastic idea Kelly! Sweet peppers, creamy brie and chewy sun dried tomatoes is such a mouth watering combo.
