How to Dice a Bell Pepper

0
Your rating: None
Dicing a bell pepper can be fiddly. Wet from the juice of the pepper, the seeds tend to stick to everything. Eliminate the hassle by using this tried-and-true method to cut down on chopping time.
What you'll need: 
A bell pepper
A serrated knife
A chopping board
1: 
Hold the pepper by its stem and slice lengthwise around the core, leaving four “fillets.”
2: 
To remove any loose seeds still remaining on the flesh, turn each fillet skin-side up and firmly “slap” it against the surface of the chopping board.
3: 
Cut each fillet into strips and then dice finely.
Tips: 
Bell pepper seeds are not spicy but actually contain a lot of flavour. Don’t be afraid to add a few to your recipe.
If you do not have a serrated knife, a sharp paring knife will do.
This method also works for jalapeño peppers.
