My favorite thing about this recipe is that it is super simple to put together and requires very little when it comes to ingredients. Whether you are making them to add to a different recipe or simply want to snack on some tender and flavorful peppers, you will be quite pleased with the result.
- When making this recipe you will need 4 medium large bell peppers. It doesn’t matter what color you choose as they all have similar flavor. Use the ones you like best.
- This recipe makes 8 bell pepper halves, if you need more than that you will want to double the recipe.
- Rinse and pat dry your bell peppers before you get started. You will also want to cut off the stem and slice them in half, starting from top to bottom.
- Slice out the pith and remove the seeds, doing the same with each pepper.
- In a large bowl combine the oil, salt and pepper until they become well combined.
- Place one or two pepper halves into the bowl with your oil mixture. We like to use a brush to coat the outside and inside of the pepper half.
- Once coated in oil, place in the tray of your air fryer upside down and repeat with the rest of the peppers until your tray is full.
- If you have a smaller air fryer you may need to do the peppers in batches. Do not overload the tray.
- Air fry your peppers at 390F for 8 minutes. Once time has elapsed, carefully open your air fryer and flip the halves over. Set the temperature back to 390 and cook for another 7 minutes.
- When the 7-minute timer goes off, check your peppers. You want them to be soft and have some blacked spots.
- When your bell peppers are done, remove them from the air fryer and allow them to cool before using them. If you choose to peel away the outer layer, do this while they are still warm, if not, leave it on and allow them to cool.
- If you are using the peppers at a later date, allow them to come to room temperature before transferring them to an airtight container or jar.
- Store these peppers in the fridge until they are ready to use. They usually stay fresh for about a week.
