Cutting bell peppers always turns out to be more complicated and messier than it should be. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a super easy way to cut bell peppers without having to worry about seeds flying everywhere.
TikTok user @theloriconway recently uploaded a video in which they showcased the hack that makes cutting bell peppers a breeze.
You start by cutting the stem and then placing the bell pepper stem-side down on the cutting board. From there, make cuts alongside the grooves of the bell pepper and just pull them apart. You should end up with clean bell pepper pieces while the part with the seeds remains untouched.
“no other way to cut a pepper!!” wrote @theloriconway in the caption of the video.
@theloriconway’s clip quickly gained a lot of attention on TikTok, with most users praising the hack. There were some who pointed out that the hack isn’t something new, while others questioned it because it “wastes” some good parts of the pepper. But there is a solution for that as well.
“Did this yesterday, and it made it so much easier. Anyone complaining about the waste, it’s easy to cut the rest to make it perfect,” @noelani_willow commented.
