Bell Pepper Recipes That Are Anything But Boring

So good.

Bell peppers are one of the least exciting options in the produce aisle, but this is a wholly undeserved reputation. Sure, peppers hardly ever take center stage in a recipe -- unless of course they're stuffed -- but they are the reason so many of our favorite recipes are so great. (Ahem, fajitas.)

Bell peppers add a flavor note to dishes that can't be replicated. And it's for this reason that we've decided to honor the bell pepper with 28 recipes that prove they're anything but boring. See for yourselves, folks.
