Last week, when I saw these li’l sweeties in the grocery store, I instantly knew what to do with them. The Mother Nature has given us so many colors in forms of these vegetables and fruits. When we bring them all together in the kitchen, a vibrant and delicious recipe is sure to come out.

So, I decided to combine my mini sweet peppers with more colors from the nature and therefore bought the fresh hot red chili peppers and avocadoes to be its companions along with a few more ingredients from my pantry.

The first thing I prepared was a chunky hot & sweet pesto with Roma tomatoes, rosemary, red chili pepper and chunks of mango. I tossed them all together with olive oil and placed them on a baking sheet. The kitchen became so aromatic the moment I roasted them together in the oven to get the perfect Char-flavor.

The fragrance of rosemary was all over. I just roasted it for 4-5 minutes to ooze their flavors out. Once, everything cooled down, I crushed them in the blender with cilantro and salt to get that perfect pesto.

Next thing I did was to mash the avocadoes and mix it with the pesto to prepare a creamy Avocado Pesto.

Last thing was to fill this flavorful Avocado Pesto into my cute mini sweet peppers. I did that easily with the help of a ziplock bag. Simply filled the ziplock bag with the avocado pesto and snipped at one corner to fill in my sweet peppers.
