Piquillo Peppers Stuffed with Baby Manchego Cheese Recipe
Sautéed piquillo peppers filled with baby Manchego cheese are a splash of color and warmth, fresh from the pan! The rich, buttery sheep's milk cheese perfectly balances the tangy sweet peppers. This recipe is quite simple and very tasty.

Slide one strip of baby Manchego cheese into the open end of each piquillo pepper.



Heat 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil in a medium sauté pan or skillet until hot and just barely smoking. Add the cheese stuffed peppers to the pan and brown the peppers on each side, turning approximately every 30 seconds, until the cheese melts.



Transfer the peppers to a plate and drizzle lightly with olive oil before serving.

I made these for a dinner party and impressed my friends. I didn't have Tetilla cheese, used Manchego instead and they were great.
