This is actually a type of hummus. You can use lemon juice instead of vinegar. I love those mini bells but they are not as sweet as the full size bells I use. I use the Red bells which are nice and sweet and would be better for this filling in my opinion. Otherwise, well done!

I didn't care much for these. Nice flavors but didn't meld well with raw peppers.
