Hummus-Stuffed Sweet Baby Pepper Bites

Pin It
I am not quite sure how it's come about but for the last two weeks my future husby and I have been getting home later than normal, which in turn means having dinner much later than our tummies expect. 

Sometimes everything works out and we throw together dinner in minutes, like our Cucumber Buttermilk Soup or White Cheddar and Asparagus Mac n' Cheese but sometimes dinner takes a little more time and I start to snack. Now, snacking as we all know isn't the best but when your not home till 7pm and you need to fire up the grill... snacking is a must.
 Snacking doesn't always have to be unhealthy or take forever for good taste... just a quick trip to the grocery store for under $7. This snack was something brought out at a work party and I have been making it ever since. It's quick, easy, delicious and a HEALTHY taste everyone will love.

And everyone loves a healthy delicious snack or appetizer.
 I made these as an appetizer a few weeks ago for my girlfriends and they were a huge hit. We got home late again this week so out came the stuffed peppers to save the day before dinner came off the grill. 

These bites are sweet with the flavor combination of whatever hummus you decide to stuff them with. Jalapeño and garlic are two other hummus flavors that I am absolutely planning on trying with these bites soon as well.

These snacks are so easy to throw together and keep in your fridge for a quick one-two appetizer when you have guests over and believe me, this is no skimpy snack. Our bites were great, held me over till dinner and I was a happy girl.
Hummus-Stuffed Sweet Baby Pepper Bites
Servings: 4-6 people

1 pint sweet baby peppers (all red or mixed colors)
1 container classic hummus

freshly cracked black pepper

Drain baby peppers to remove most of the marinated oil.

Spoon hummus into each little pepper opening or pipe with a icing tip for a more decretive look. Sprinkle cracked black pepper over bites and serve chilled.

i've never been crazy about hummus as a dip for crudite (i'd rather just use a spoon), but this is far better and too cute to pass up! very clever, laura!
