Quick question.....what kind of peppers do you like in these? Red, green, or a hot pepper?

emily ~ use whatever you like. i've just been using the peppers that come in our weekly share: usually mild peppers {anaheim or antohi} + one jalapeño. the peppers are where you can customize the heat, so go with what you know & love.
