  1. Cut around the stalk of the orange peppers to create lids, being careful to leave the opening wide enough for dipping. Pull out the tops from stalks and slice off the attached seeds. Discard the seeds and reserve the tops. Remove any remaining seeds from inside the peppers. 
  2. Use a small sharp knife to cut ‘monster’ and ‘jack-o-lantern-style’ faces into the orange peppers. Slice a little off the base to level if necessary, being careful not to slice all the way through. 
  3. Fill the orange peppers with the houmous. Replace the lids until ready to serve. Serve with tortilla chips or pepper strips.
