Hot Peppers with Bread Crumbs, Garlic and Cheese
This is one of my favorite things to make and super easy. I love them just on their own, or with some good bread or even cut up and tossed with some pasta and olive oil. They can be super hot or mild depending on the peppers.
We use Pasilla Peppers and split them in half. Wash well. I leave the seeds in because I want the extra heat. If you like them more mild, then clean out the seees completely.
Put them in a baking pan with a little water in the bottom. This will provide steam later. Then add some bread crumbs ( plain or seasoned) 1 or 2 Tablespoons per pepper. Fresh garlic or good garlic powder, drizzle each pepper with some good olive oil and then add a nice spoonful of romano or your favorite grated cheese. Sprinkle with sea salt. That's it! Cover the pan with foil and cook in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Then uncover and cook another 10 to have them brown up on top.
Here are the ingredients listed.
Garlic or Garlic Powder
Grated Romano Cheese
You will need an oblong baking Pan.
Oven at 400 degrees
Foil to cover the pan.
Enjoy these.. they are so easy and so delicious!
Again, I leave the seeds in because I love hot food! I sometimes add hot pepper seeds if my Pasilla's are not spicy enough.
