5 1/3
oz. (1 1/3 cups) shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4
cup sliced pitted ripe olives
3/4
cup Old El Paso® Salsa
1/4
cup light sour cream
  • 1 Heat grill. Spray bell peppers with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2 When ready to grill, place peppers on gas grill over medium-high heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 4 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender and grill marked, turning occasionally. Remove from grill; let stand until cool enough to handle.
  • 3 Reduce heat on gas grill to low, or spread out coals to reduce heat.
