Stuffed Pepperoncinis

Total Time

Prep: 45 min.


about 4 dozen

To reduce some of the juice in these spicy appetizers, I drain the pepperoncinis for about 3 hours on paper towel before stuffing. This recipe makes a big batch, which is perfect for parties.


  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into wedges
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pepperoni
  • 1/4 cup chopped salami
  • 1/4 cup cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack or pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup zesty Italian salad dressing
  • 2 jars (24 ounces each) pepperoncini, drained
  • Additional grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a food processor, combine the first nine ingredients; cover and process until finely chopped.
  2. Cut off the stem end of each pepperoncini; remove seeds. Pipe or stuff pepperoncinis with cheese mixture. Dip exposed end into additional Parmesan cheese. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
