Pitzotl Stuffed Jalapenos: Spice Up Your Appetizers
Jalapeno poppers are a great example. Creamy. Cheesy. Delicious. Right? But, they're puttery to make, since they need to be battered and fried. So, how about a slightly easier version?
These peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese and Monterey Jack cheese mixture that matches (or beats) that of the usual jalapeno poppers. It's made even more delicious with the addition of a bit of finely diced Bolzano Pitzotl, an artisan salami made from heirloom pork flavored with chiles and cocoa powder.
Just slice open the jalapenos, scrape out the seeds, stuff with the cheese mixture, and bake.
They're absolutely delicious -- reminiscent of a cross between jalapeno poppers and pepperoni pizza -- and perfect for your next party. I'm thinking they'd even be delicious made on the grill in the summertime.
