Top green, red and yellow bell peppers with cheese, olives and crushed red pepper for an appetizer that's bursting with color and flavor.
green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 6 strips
red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 6 strips
yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into 6 strips
cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (3 ounces)
tablespoons chopped ripe olives
teaspoon crushed red pepper
Cut bell pepper strips crosswise in half. Arrange close together in ungreased broilerproof pie pan, 9x1 1/4 inches, or round pan, 9x2 inches. Sprinkle with cheese, olives and red pepper.
Set oven control to broil. Broil peppers with tops 3 to 4 inches from heat about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Rajas "strips" usually refers to ribbons of chilies.
No need to limit yourself to Monterey Jack cheese. Use any variety you’d like, or use both a yellow and a white cheese for color contrast.
