Guacamole never disappoints! Did you know that roughly 8 million pounds of guacamole are consumed every year during the Big Game? This version from Pero Family Farms adds a sweet twist with the addition of mini sweet peppers and corn creating a mouthwatering sweet and savory flavor when paired with tortilla chips.
Pro tip: if you’re planning on making this recipe ahead of time, make sure to add a generous amount of lime to keep the avocado from browning.
What’s a game party without nachos? Forget tortilla chips, mini sweet peppers make the perfect vehicle for your favorite nacho toppings. This recipe from Pero Family Farms features corn, green chiles, black beans, Mexican cheese, and more of the classic nacho toppings just with a healthier base! Make a double batch because these are sure to disappear in no time.
A small bite that’s sure to delight! These stuffed mini sweet peppers may look fancy, but they’re made with only 4 simple ingredients and ready in minutes. Prep the day before and simply pull these out of the refrigerator when you’re ready to serve. The mini sweet peppers provide a delicious crunch against the cheesy goodness from the fontina and cream cheese mixture. Try baking them if you prefer a warm snack.
It’s safe to say that goat cheese and sweet peppers were made for each other. The combination of tangy and sweet is guaranteed to make your guests come back for seconds. The recipe calls for slow cooking the mini sweet peppers for 20 minutes to give them that perfect caramelized flavor. This yummy mix sits atop a toasted crusty bread for a snack that will hold up well throughout your game day party. Drizzle with a bit of balsamic glaze for an extra special touch.
Mini Sweet Peppers are the perfect snack for game day! Besides being delicious in recipes, you can simply slice them up and pair with ranch, hummus, or your favorite dip. They’re an excellent source for Vitamin C, low in calories, have no fat or cholesterol and are big on flavor and crunch.
