DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Place one chiltepin in the cavity of each dove, reserving 2 peppers.
  • Rub salt and pepper into the skins of the birds.
  • Wrap each dove with a strip of bacon, making sure the breast is covered especially well.
  • Secure with toothpicks.
  • Transfer doves to a baking dish that will hold them snugly in a single layer.
  • Pour stock over the doves, and add the last two peppers to the dish.
  • Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove the cover and continue baking 20 to 30 more minutes, until the liquid has reduced a bit and the bacon has browned.
  • Transer doves to a serving platter, discarding the greasy cooking liquid.
  • let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  • If your guests are not chileheads, caution them against eating the chile pods.
