I mean who doesn’t love to get a tasty roasted pepper in every bite!

Piquillo Peppers

Piquillo peppers have a thinner flesh than a red bell pepper. Their color is deep red and the taste is mildly tart and sweet. In my opinion, they have more flavor than roasted red bell peppers. When the piquillo peppers are roasted, they acquire a spicy sweet taste, but not too spicy. If you can’t find piquillo peppers, then use the jarred variety of roasted red bell peppers. These vibrant piquillo peppers are perfect for charcuterie, tapas and mezze dishes as well as throwing in chili and soup recipes.
