Spicy-Sweet Peruvian Pepper Perfect for Stuffing, Serving and Snacking

POSTED August 26, 2014

These famous sweet-and-spicy Peruvian peppers are an antipasto superstar! Their round sturdy hollows make them perfect for stuffing, while their irresistibly tangy flavor makes them an amazing accent to a myriad of applications.

What is a Pepperazzi™?

Pepperazzi™ Peppers are one of our favorite antipasti. Why? Not only are they delicious, but they make for easy (yet impressive) entertaining. Native to Peru, these squat red beauties boast big flavor, an ideal balance of sweet and piquant in one little pepper! Their crisp texture make them sturdy stuffing peppers, perfect for filling with creamy cheeses, chicken or tuna salad, seafood, hummus, dips and more. Add another dimension of awesome with our Tri-Color Pepperazzi™, featuring that same amazing flavor in a colorful medley of red, yellow and green peppers.

For an added smoky-sweet flavor, try our Roasted Pepperazzi™ Peppers.
