  • 20 Mini Sweet Peppers, measuring about 2-3 inches each (look for the bagged mix of sweet peppers in the produce section)
  • 1 (5.2 oz) round Boursin Cheese
  • 3 oz Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 2 stalks Green Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Cilantro, finely chopped
  • Salsa, for serving (opt)


  • Turn on the oven's broiler (if prepping right before cooking).
  • Halve the sweet peppers and arrange them, cut-side up, on a greased baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, combine the Boursin, parmesan, green onions and cilantro. Stir until smooth and evenly combined (if the mixture is very hard to stir, you can add a splash of milk or water to make it easier to combine). Spoon the mixture into the sliced peppers.
  • Place the pan approximately 6 inches under the broiler and broil just until golden brown and heated through, about 6 minutes.
  • Serve alone or with salsa for dipping!
