We have a bumper crop of bell peppers right now. The grocery store had them on sale! The one thing that always seems expensive at our store-on sale! Then, the farmer’s market had them cheap! Really cheap. We couldn’t turn them down. It was a miracle. (and a good reason to always check out both your sale flyers AND your local farmer’s market)
This is a recipe that I grew up with that used green peppers. In fact, I thought this was the way everyone ATE green peppers. I think that I discovered uncooked green peppers as a fabulous food item by chopping them and snagging one for this recipe when I was a child.
