    breezermom's Note:

    Spanish-style tapas, appetizer-sized portions that allow you savor a variety of flavors at a single meal. Piquillos are small, red, spicy-sweet roasted Spanish peppers; look for them in gourmet groceries...I've found them in Pensacola, FL.....so I'm sure they are available. I've also successfully subbed Cherry Bomb Peppers, grown abundantly here in the south and roasted them myself. This recipe also uses Spanish manchego cheese. Serving size is for tapas size servings, not main dish, although these could be served as a main dish.....just for 2 or 3.

      Fresh exotic flavor! Just lightly spicey. Had just the right amount of stuffing. Made for ZWT8.

      Had a tapas party and these peppers were invited. Glad I had extra peppers since I ended up with extra filling. Maybe my peppers were on the small size but the recipe turned out really good.
