Peppers of all sorts are enjoyable with many dishes. However, slicing them and having a seed explosion on your cutting board is not enjoyable by any means. Or you just don’t like pepper seeds. I get it, we all have our preferences. That’s why I decided to share with you all a little trick I picked up a few years back. You can apply this trick to any type of pepper, whether it is bell, banana, Serrano, chili or jalapeño peppers. Okay grab a bell pepper and let’s slice it up.

What to Gather:

  • One Bell Pepper of any color

Tool Belt:

  • Sharp knife
  • Cutting board

The Guide:

  • Position the cutting board on a flat surface.
  • Stand your bell pepper upright with the stem facing up.
  • If the pepper is wobbly, slice a bit of the bottom off to give you a flat bottom. This also helps to see where the seeds are.
  • Position your knife at the edge, move inwards a bit staying away from the absolute center.
  • Slice down in a straight motion.
  • Turn the pepper and repeat for each side.
  • Compost or discard the core and all those annoying seeds.
  • Don’t worry if you get some seeds, they’re easy to dust off.
  • Enjoy your new cooking trick

That’s all for now, and remember that Dad Bods Cook!
