While Peppers are in season this a great anytime recipe. Great for entertaining, or a no fuss dinner on a hot night. This recipe is very adaptable to what you have on hand, and easily catered to your tastebuds.
-Tortured Orchards Garlic Balsamic Drizzle, Spiced Pineapple Zinger or Golden Sauce (your choice)
– Peppers for stuffing, certainly can use Jalepeno, but we used Sweet peppers.
– 1 8oz. packet of Cream Cheese (room temp.)
-cookie sheet/grill pan
* This is very simple. Once your brick of cream cheese is soft, pour your desired Tortured Orchard flavor into the Cream Cheese. Start by adding a Tablespoon at a time to taste, and mixing it together with the Cream Cheese.
*Using a pairing knife carefully cut a slit in each pepper enough for you to open it up, and take out the seeds.
*Then, once all the insides are out, take some of your cream cheese mixture and stuff the peppers.
*Now this next step is a choice for you whether you would rather bake them, or finish them in the grill pan.
* If you choose the Grill pan, spray your pan with oil and turn your stove on medium heat, and evenly place the stuffed peppers in the pan. Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side before turning the Peppers.
*When they are all charred and the flesh of the Peppers have softened your Tortured Orchard Popper should be ready to be devoured.
Note: If you are using the oven, turn your oven on to 350 degrees while you’re stuffing the Peppers. Once stuffed place on a baking sheet and cook until the Peppers flesh is soft.
Feel free to use the remaining Tortured Orchard Sauces for dipping!
Try adding fresh herbs or mincing up some shallots, or tomato.
