How To Make Mini Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

We always seem to have a bag of these mini peppers in the fridge. Our boys love to snack on them (so do we) and love making these Ranch Mini Peppers, too!

For these stuffed mini peppers, all you need to do is pick up lean roast beef from your deli and shredded mozzarella cheese, or provolone would work nice too.

And then of course the mini bell peppers. You know the bag of the little bell peppers that you see in the grocery store? Grab one to make these stuffed peppers and another just for snacking.

Chop up a large onion and put it in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat. After a few minutes when it gets softened up, add in the roast beef from the deli that you’ve chopped up into small slices.

Add in a few seasonings and a little marsala wine and the filling is done. Slice the peppers in half and fill them up with the stuffing. Add the cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes.

It really can’t get much simpler than that. And it’s a good thing because like I said, these won’t be around for half-time so make sure to double the recipe!
