Ingredients

  • ounces cream cheese 
  • cloves garlic minced
  • stalks spring onion finely chopped
  • 24 servings pepper black
  • tablespoons olive oil 
  • 0.3 teaspoon salt 
  • 12  snack peppers 
  • 0.5 cup walnuts chopped

Equipment

  • food processor
  • bowl
  • baking sheet
  • oven
  • blender

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut the bell peppers lengthwise, remove the seeds and stems. Lightly oil the bell peppers by tossing them in a bowl with some grapeseed oil or olive oil.
  3. Place the peppers on a baking sheet skin-side down. Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the edges begin to show some color.
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.While the peppers are roasting, prepare your stuffing.
  5. Place the cream cheese, walnuts, garlic, salt, sriracha and black pepper in a bowl and mix until creamy (I used a fork to mash the ingredients together but Im sure this can be done in a food processor or mixer).
  6. Add the green onion and fold in to the cream cheese until combined. Test the cream cheese for flavor. If you would like, add more salt and/or sriracha.
  7. Heat your oven to 400 degrees. Use a spoon (or a piping bag) to stuff the peppers liberally and place them back on the baking sheet. There is enough stuffing here to really pack those suckers up, so you dont need to worry about the amount of cream cheese youre portioning out. If the cream cheese is very soft, place the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 15 minutes to allow it to set up. If not, place pop the peppers in the oven and bake about 8 minutes. Change oven setting to high broil and bake an additional 2 minutes, until the tops of the cream cheese begin to brown (If theyre already brown at this point, skip the broiling).Put on a pretty plate and serve to your friends.
