Spicy Marinated Peppers Recipe

My all time favorite wintertime appetizer: spicy marinated peppers. Seasoned with garlic and fresh herbs, so simple and so appetizing. I call these yellow peppers, not sure if they are called differently . But what matters is the taste and how easy they are to make.

My mom would make this every single Fall, normally, late fall, and preserve it for wintertime. Before the wintertime, I was the one to start snacking on those addictive spicy marinated peppers.

I know many can’t or don’t like eating spicy food, those can substitute with sweet peppers, I’m sure it’ll taste just as good.

I’ll put down a quick recipe but eyeballing always works with this appetizer, since there are not too many ingredients .

Hope you guys try and like it .
