This is a Spanish traditional recipe and I had it at a restaraunt in town that serves traditional Spanish tapas. This was a fantastic dish and I just had to find a recipe. I found this online and it looks exactly like what I had. Enjoy!

  • 5 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • coarse sea salt, to taste
  • coarse ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat Broiler to High.

This is a yummy tapas. I have been making it since I discovered piquillo peppers last year. You can vary the stuffing. Try crab, creamcheese and mint, or add soaked raisons and pinenuts to the goat cheese. On and on. People rave about them every tme. Thanks, Nik
