This was lovely and fresh tasting. The only thing I changed was to bake the peppers in the oven as I prefer the taste this way. Cooked in a hot oven for about 20 minutes until lightly charred.

So delicious. New favourite in our household, definitely worth trying. Had ours with sour cream and lettuce in wraps.
