Bell Pepper Rings

If you’re a fan of onion rings then you’ll LOVE this alternative. I call these Bell Pepper Rings! I’ll admit I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this variation on the classic but after trying them they’re so delicious I often find excuses to make them whenever I can.

The best thing about these bell pepper rings is that they’re a piece of cake to make. A it takes is a few simple ingredients and a little bit of cook time and you’re munching on a fantastic appetizer. I also like experimenting with different dipping sauces because these rings do pair well with practically everything. My favorite sauce is a creamy ranch dip but a marinara sauce is also quite delicious.

I also make these rings in my air fryer so there’s no unnecessary oil needed and they come out crunchy and delicious. If you try this recipe let me know how you like them and what dipping sauce if your favorite.

If you use an air fryer lay the peppers evenly and don't stack too many pepper rings on top of each other. You may have to do several batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
