Pepper Bellies, Cozy Suppers & Ultimate Recipe Swap

Ultimate Recipe Swap [4]

When I was growing up, my mom excelled in making meals memorable. Curried potatoes [5] and pork chops, Chinese takeout that we ate at the coffee table, sitting on cushions, deli meats on fluffy white French bread — those are all tastes and memories of my childhood.

And Mom knew how to make things feel cozy. She loved to get a roaring fire going, snuggle up with blankets, and watch the logs crackle and pop.

One of my favorite meals from that era was Pepper Bellies. I have no idea why they were called that. But, that is what we called them, anyway.

I made them for my kids last week on a cold, rainy day. And if felt like a cozy supper once again.


This is super simple and you probably already make them, even if you don’t call them, “Pepper Bellies.” Tradition dictates that you use Fritos, but I didn’t have any. So feel free to update the classic with tortilla chips.

What’s YOUR favorite cozy supper?
