    I love ideas like this. Sadly, Banana Chillies are not very easy to come by in the UK, so I'll have to use bell peppers and add spice/heat to the stuffing - or I could use "normal" size chillies and do teeny-tiny versions: more fiddly, but fun. Thanks for the inspiration, and keep 'em coming.

    This is a great idea. The only problem I have is that the heat of banana peppers here (Oregon) is unpredictable. They can be mild to medium hot and it makes it tough to control flavor. Your recipe is lovely. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

    These peppers are also called Hungarian wax peppers. They sure pack a lot of "heat" Love the spicy, and oh, so yummy!
