How to Purchase and Store Sweet Peppers

Look for brightly coloured sweet peppers with a firm thick flesh. Sweet peppers, also called bell peppers, should not be soft, dull in colour or have spots. Red, purple and yellow bell peppers are green originally, but change colour as they mature. Store unwashed peppers in the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag, or loosely wrapped in a plastic bag for about 1 week. To prepare, wash thoroughly and cut away the core. Remove seeds and membrane. Wrap cut pieces tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.

    Fantastic!!! I made these last night for supper and the whole family loved them - including my two year old son. I did add about a 1/2 tbsp of chili powder to the beef and peppers for added flavour. I also added a bit more cheese on top than a 1/4 cup and left out the cilantro since I did not have any.
