Bell Pepper Relleno

Bell Pepper Relleno


1 kg ground pork

6 pcs cut in half, slightly roasted, medium red and green bell pepper

2 tbsp oil

3 tbsp grated garlic

1 cup chopped white onion

1 cup chopped red and green bell pepper

1 to 1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup grated queso de bola or parmesan

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp pepper flakes

2 pcs bay leaves

3 tbsp cornstarch

4 eggs


Prepare the bell pepper: wash, cut in half and clean. 

Slightly roast them or you can just use the way it is.

In a wok or sauce pan, put the oil and saute garlic and onion until the aroma comes out.

Add the ground pork and seasoning: salt, black pepper, pepper flakes, bay leaves, paprika and 1/4 cup cheese.Cooked in a medium high fire for 20 minutes.Let it cool

Next, add the eggs and cornstarch, mix well and proceed on stuffing.

Stuff the bell pepper with the egg cornstarch cooked pork mixture.Garnish with the remaining cheese.

Arrange properly on a tray. Bake at 200 C for 40 minutes.

Or you can also fry them, I prefer the fried ones but baking saves time. 

Please note, if you plan to cook it by baking, Roast the bell pepper first, I do that on our stove. 

I just wait for the color to turn slightly dark or wait for the aroma to come out.

Serve and enjoy!
