Cooking bell pepper snacks (stuffed with cottage cheese):

Step 1: prepare the pepper.

Sweet bell peppers are thoroughly washed under running water. With a knife we ​​cut off the tips, father-in-law's tail and ass about 1 centimeter. Carefully trying not to damage the pepper, remove the core from it. To make our peppers suitable for stuffing, you need to remove all seeds and partitions from them, then rinse them thoroughly from the inside. We let the water drain and add a little pepper in the middle to remove its natural bitterness. While our peppers are infused, go to the filling.

Step 2: prepare the filling.

Since cottage cheese is the main ingredient for filling with it, we will begin our preparation. You should choose fat non-acidic cottage cheese, so the filling will be more tender. We wipe the cottage cheese on full, if the cottage cheese is a little dry, you can pass it through a meat grinder before that. Three processed cheese on a fine grater and add to the curd. Add the butter and mix. The resulting mass is again wiped through a sieve. Wash greens thoroughly, dry and finely chop. If desired, garlic can also be finely chopped, but it is better to push it into the garlic. Add these ingredients to the curd cheese. Salt, pepper to taste, but do not forget that we have salt pepper and now we need less salt. Mix everything thoroughly in a bowl until a mushy state. And move on to stuffing.

Step 3: stuff the peppers.

It is convenient to stuff pepper with a small spoon. We use a teaspoon for this. Tightly fill the peppers with curd filling and arrange them in a deep plate. After all the peppers are stuffed, cover them with cling film and set to cool in the refrigerator for about 1.5 hours.

Step 4: serve to the table.

After our pepper is well infused, take it out of the refrigerator and chop. We cut each into circles. The thinner the circles, the tastier our snack will be. But here the main thing is not to overdo it, if you cut too thin, the filling will fall out. We spread our circles on a plate, decorate each circle with a sprig of greenery and serve. Enjoy your meal!
