When I was in San Francisco earlier in the Summer, Anetta and I were at lunch and ordered Blistered Shishito Peppers. I think she ate 3 and I ate about 25. I could not stop!! Spicy, smokey, amazing! When I came back to STL, I ordered them again with a friend at happy hour.

I loved them just as much the second time, but she thought they were ways too spicy. I’ve seen Blistered Shishito Peppers all over Pinterest lately, and if you love spice, you have to make them! But if you want something less spicy with a hint of sweet, this variation is for you!! Blistered Sweet Peppers with Lemon Pepper Goat Cheese Dip is everything I love about the spicier version; super easy, beautiful, and delicious.

You can get a big bag of multi-colored sweet peppers in any grocery store. They’re delicious and pop-able raw; perfect dipped in hummus or greek yogurt. But if you REALLY want to make them shine, cook them in a skillet with a little oil and sea salt, and serve them with this Lemon Pepper Goat Cheese Dip. I’m telling you…it’s all kinds of perfection!

I love the simplicity and easy of this recipe. It can be made year round (in the Summer, just throw them on the grill instead of cooking in a skillet!), and pair with so many meals. You can feel good about eating them and don’t have to stop at just one. And you will not want to stop at just one!
