  • ” Impera_Magna recommended this recipe for my mothers birthday. They were easy to make, I couldn’t get monterey jack cheese so used a strong cheddar, but they were very tasty and were well recieved by my guests. I will definately make these again. thank you Rita”

  • “This was pretty good. The peppers, cheese and olives together were a good mix. I chose to leave the crushed red pepper off as I don’t like too much hot. I used the chopped olives out of a can and I think that next time I’ll use sliced olives for a prettier presentation. Thanks Rita!”

  • “These are really good. I love bell peppers, but the toppings on these really make them something special.”

  • “I like peppers so much I could eat just the pepper strips by themselves, but with the cheese, olives & crushed red pepper added, what a treat! Nice and relatively, healthy, too.”
