Once the family leaves this blog will move back to its regularly scheduled program of quilting, not food.
But we’ve been cooking, not quilting. I have some pies for the fourth, but we always fall back on our lip-smacking, beer gulping starter.
Perfect for the 4th.
The photographed version is made with sweet peppers for those who don’t like it hot!
Introducing our version of Jalapeno Poppers. I use to make these in Mexico on our travels to Guerrero.
1) Cut your jalapenos (or sweet peppers) in half lengthwise and deseed them with a spoon. Wear gloves or plan on not touching any sensitive body parts later.
2) Stuff full with a salty feta. My favorite is from Trader Joe’s and is packaged in a yellow/green bag.
3) Grill on a hot grill till undersides are pretty toasted.
Some will be mild and some super hot.
I recently had the sweet peppers at my friend Noelle’s, stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in proscuitto. Trying those this round too.
Enjoy your 4th, I hope you are surrounded by friends and family!
