I’m not sure about your grocery store, but mine still has green peppers on sale for $.50 a piece. Seems like every other week I’m seeing this sale price.
When I see prices this low on produce, I’ll grab a bunch and then chop them up to freeze them. (Or use them that week to make Stuffed Peppers or for a veggie tray with hummus.) Then later this winter when I’m crazy a bowl of chili, I can make this and load it up with my super cheap green bell peppers!
How to Cut a Bell Pepper <— a must watch video
When I know that I’m going to use bell peppers for fajitas or soups, I’ll slice some for fajitas and dice some for soups/chilis. They can be frozen “as is” and then cooked in your skillet or pot when you need them. Since they will be cooked at a later time, there is no need to blanche or prepare them in a special way before freezing them.
Hope you enjoy this Green Pepper Chili…
