Hummus Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers Appetizer

Little plates. Trays of small bites. Platters of things to bite and dip. There are so many good reasons to set out a spread of appetizers. They’re perfect for noshing on while watching award shows. Ideal for digging into during special episodes of your favorite shows. Perfect for New Year’s Eve, that big game and, oh, and just about any evening of the week when you want to switch up the dinner routine.

It’s really always a good time for appetizers.

One of our favorite things to include in appetizer spreads is hummus. Hummus was one of my kids first foods. It’s something they’ve both loved since they were just barely able to walk, and something they still eagerly enjoy. Served with veggies, crackers, bread or whatever else moves us, we love it.

When Heluva Good!® recently reached out to me about trying their new hummus line, I couldn’t wait. My kids and I — Will is 10 and Paige is 8 — enjoy the Heluva Good! dips already, so I was psyched for us to try all three flavors: Original, Roasted Red Pepper and Horseradish.

And they didn’t disappoint — each of the creamy hummus varieties is well seasoned, full of flavor and perfect for dipping. They’re also delicious as a spread and in other recipe applications. We’re always partial to the bright flavor of roasted red pepper hummus, but the zesty heat of the horseradish flavor was tasty too — for me at least.

Hummus Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

However, it’s the original that I used to make little Hummus Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers appetizers with. The flavor was perfect for combining with juicy sweet peppers and a brightly flavored mini salad.

Making these was pretty simple, quick and easy.

First, I cut the mini sweet peppers in half, taking care to remove the seeds and ribs. Then I filled the cavities of each half with hummus. Finally, I spooned on a quick and easy veggie confetti salad made with finely chopped carrots, cucumbers and red onions. The result was a bright, flavorful small bite.

Like the hummus itself, these are perfect for appetizer spreads.

I love making my own hummus, but sometimes being able to grab a tasty one at the store makes my life easier! And this recipe would be the impetus to do just that. Yum!
