Cheesy Grilled Peppers

Grilled peppers are one of my favorite summer foods. I love love love grilled peppers of all kinds.

Poblano, Jalapenos, Jimmy Nardelo, Carmen, Bell and especially Shishitos. I have posted lots of Shishito recipes here.

This is as easy to make as it is delicious.

Just wash the peppers and cut them in half and clean out the seeds and membranes, except for Shishitos, leave them whole.

I like to toss the peppers in olive oil and sprinkle some salt on them before grilling.

Grill the peppers on both sides so they are pretty much done, then add the cheese. My favorite cheese for grilled peppers is Manchego, especially for sweet peppers like Carmen and Jimmy Nardelo.

It doesn’t take much cheese, in fact, don’t put too much on or it won’t melt properly.

That’s it. We had this for dinner with some grilled corn on the cob with lots leftover. Leftovers are great for breakfast with eggs (grilled pepper and egg tacos anyone?!).

Today it feels like Fall is around the corner. Enjoy the Summer’s bounty.

Have a great week. We’ll see you at pickup.
