Peppers are a great vegetable, and each color offers its own unique flavor. That is why it is so much fun to blend peppers. You still get a pot pourri of tastes even though they are all just peppers. A red pepper is quite sweet and stir fries up lovely and tender, green peppers are much more robust and firm to the bite, whereas yellow and orange peppers seem to fall somewhere in between.
