(Psst…There is info to win a Weber Grill and more down below!) This weekend was Father’s Day (Hi, Dad!) and for most summer holidays (and most summer weekends!) we love to gather around the pool and BBQ. This day was gorgeous and so the whole family, from near and far, piled into trains, no planes, but yes, automobiles to make our way to Dad’s pool where we enjoyed the extremely hot day. On days like this, I like to make this Quick and Easy Summer Appetizer with Mezzetta Roasted Bell Peppers.
Speaking of hot, there is a quick and easy go-to appetizer I always make for moments like this. I like to leave it by the edge of the pool and people can take it and eat it in one bite, no mess or fuss. (Please note: they disappear very quickly!) That, combined with the fact that the prep in making these is also no mess or fuss makes me happy and willing to “cook” even on the hottest of days.
I love using Mezzetta Peppers (in this case Bell) because they are so tender and also locally grown in Napa Valley (which, hey Bay Area, you’ll have my heart forever!). Here is the recipe. You can literally not mess it up. Also, there are three ingredients so you should have them on hand. And you can definitely increase the heat factor with the type of Mezzetta Pepper you use!
- Mezzetta Peppers (I use roasted Bell Peppers)
- Cream Cheese
- Spread cream cheese on cracker
- Tear or cut the peppers to fit on crackers
Seriously, they are that easy and that delicious! The Mezzettta Peppers are so tender I can tear them with my (clean) fingers. I make these in two seconds and they are gone in two seconds.
