A recipe for round, sweet chili peppers stuffed with a mixture of chicken and feta cheese. We used the Liebesapfel Sweet Pepper for this one.

I’ve said this many times – chili peppers are the ideal vessels for stuffing. Not all of them, of course, but there are so many large ones out there in the world, just begging for you to stuff them.

The larger peppers tend to be sweeter and milder, with thicker flesh that stand up to baking or your preferred preparation.

Stuffed peppers are also the perfect meal. A veggie serving in every bite! You can turn any number of meals into a stuffed pepper meal.

For this recipe, I used the sweet Liebesapfel chili pepper. Liebesapfel, you say? Yes, I did! It is a cute little pepper that looks quite a bit like an apple or a tiny gourd or pumpkin. The flavor is sweet and the flesh is rather thick, though not as thick as a sweet bell pepper. The name is German and it means “Love Apple”.

Very cool name, if you ask me, and I think you WILL love this pepper. Learn more about the Liebesapfel Chili Pepper Here.
