Stuffed Picante Pepper Appetizer

The little picante peppers have an amazing flavor that's not too spicy!   Filled with an artichoke and goat cheese mixture, they make for a zesty "pop in your mouth" one bite appetizer.

Stuffed Picante Pepper Appetizer

  • picante peppers, cored and de-seeded
  • 8 oz goat cheese
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 C artichoke hearts, minced
  • 2 T fresh thyme, minced
  • 2 T fresh Italian parsley, minced
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper

 Directions:   In a bowl, add minced artichokes, shallots, thyme, parsley, lemon zest, salt and pepper to goat's cheese.   Mix until incorporated and smooth.   Using a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, pipe mixture into each picante pepper.   Arrange on platter and garnish with a bit of the chopped Italian Parsley.   Serve immediately or keep in refrigerator wrapped in plastic until ready to serve.
