Easy Halloween Lunch Idea
I am so excited to share these Halloween Mummy Peppers with you because they are so cute! And even better, they are so easy to make! If you’re looking for the perfect side dish next to a Halloween meatloaf or for a Halloween lunch box – then look no further!
These Mummy Peppers are simple to make because you only need 3 healthy ingredients: sweet peppers, black beans and cheese. They also only take minutes to prep which this Mom likes very much!
To make these mummy peppers, we’re going to need a good base to stuff with black beans. I like using sweet peppers because they aren’t spicy at all, but filled with sweetness so kids love them!
I hope you like these little cute peppers as much as my kids do!
How to Make Stuffed Mummy Peppers
First, remove the stem off each pepper and then cut in half. Place on a piece of parchment paper on top of a baking sheet. This is for easy cleanup.
Now fill each pepper with black beans. These are canned black beans that I drained and rinsed.
Fill each pepper with the black beans. I’d recommend about 3 peppers per person at a party, so you can use your judgement here on how many you want to make.
Add 2-4 strips of cheese per pepper, depending on their size. I think ripping up a mozzarella cheese ball works best because the cheese is thicker, but you can also use already bagged shredded cheese if you want.
After the cheese is on top, throw into the oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes, so the cheese completely melts. Below shows the before and after.
Now grab some candy eyeballs because the Mummy needs eyes! You can find these candy eyes at pretty much any store that has a Halloween section, or on Amazon.
Press two eyes into each pepper on the melted cheese. I would recommend you do this immediately when they come out of the oven, so the cheese is still soft, it will keep the eyes in place better.
And just like that you have the cutest little Halloween peppers ever! This will make parents and children both smile!
Enjoy these Stuffed Mummy Peppers!
