Whenever I see padron peppers on the menu at a restaurant, I make sure to order them. Why? Because they are only in season for a short period of time and they are such a fun appetizer. One in twelve peppers is spicy so every time you take bite you are taking a little gamble. The best part is that they are super easy to make. I added a little creamy goat cheese sauce to round out the perfect appetizer.
Step No. 1
Wash and dry the peppers.
Step No. 2
In a small bowl add 3/4 cups of whipped or spreadable goat cheese.
Step No. 3
Add about 2 tablespoons of chives, a sprinkle of salt and a few cracks of coarsely ground pepper.
Step No. 4
In a pan over med high, heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Once olive oil is hot place peppers in oil. Be careful because the oil will splash. Using tongs turn the peppers until they turn blistered and golden brown.
Step No. 5
Place on plate and drizzle over goat cheese sauce. I also like to serve on the side in case people want to dip.
