Jalapeño and Bacon Bites
Makes 24 bites
This hors d'oeuvre is for the hot-spicy lovers! I love the presentation of this dish and have played with variations using different peppers. Padrón, poblano, and even those delicious baby sweet peppers. It all works!
12 whole jalapeño peppers
1 cup goat cheese, room temperature
12 rashers bacon, cooked 1/2 way (not crispy)
Green Chili Piri Piri to serve
Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Fill each cavity with goat cheese and wrap with 1/2 bacon rasher. Close with a toothpick. Place on a baking sheet and cook until the bacon is cooked through and crispy. Transfer to a decorative platter and serve with Green Piri Piri.
