These are great as a side dish, appetizer, or party food. They can be served hot or at room temperature so you don't have to worry about keeping them heated. I always get lots of requests for the recipe every time I make them to take anywhere. By the way, Cubanella peppers may be called Banana peppers in some parts of the country. These are not hot peppers, even the kids like these.
