Tips for Easy Air Fryer Stuffed Peppers

Air Fryer stuffed peppers are so delicious, and super easy to make. To make sure your stuffed peppers come out the way you like here are some tips.

Peppers: When you are looking for peppers, look for ones that are roughly the same size and have good even bottom so they’ll stand up.

Wobbly Peppers: If your peppers can’t stand up on their own, you can trim the bottom so they sit flatter.

Lean on Each Other: Don’t be tempted to lean them against each other to keep them straight up. You want the air to circulate around them the best it can.

Slice The Peppers: If you have really uneven bottomed peppers you can cut the peppers in half and fill them.

Variety: Feel free to use a variety of peppers, green, red, yellow or orange will all be fantastic.

Crunchy Top: You will want to top the filling with cheese to keep the rice from getting to crunchy in the air fryer.

Shred Your own Cheese: Pre shredded cheese usually has anti-caking agents in it which can keep them from melting nicely.

Know Your Air Fryer: I might sound like a broken record when you read my air fryer recipes but every air fryer is different. My temperature and timings are guidelines. Refer to your own manual for guidance and experience for what works best for your air fryer recipes.
