Sweet peppers are stuffed with a delectable cream cheese and sour cream mixture, and then either baked or broiled until hot. This makes a lovely side dish or an appetizer.


  • 1 large red sweet bell pepper
  • 4 oz (110 g) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice (optional)


  1. Slice the pepper in half and scoop out the seeds and white membrane.
  2. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and lime juice if using.
  3. Divide the cheese mixture between the pepper halves.
  4. Put the filled pepper halves on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 350ºF (175ºC) for 20 minutes for a soft result or broil (grill) for 5 minutes for a crunchy one.


Add chopped cilantro and minced green onion to the recipe if you wish.
Feel free to use any shape, type and color of peppers.
If you want the peppers really soft, boil the halves for 5 minutes before stuffing and baking them.
