Goat Cheese Jalapeno Poppers

This last weekend I had the pleasure of celebrating a friends 40th birthday.  At his party, his mom, Becky made these delicious stuffed jalapeno poppers.  These were simple and elegant, and so delicious.  I never thought of putting together goat cheese and pickled jalapeno peppers together, but now that I have tried this, this dish will be making future appearances at my house.

Goat Cheese Jalapeno Poppers Recipe

If you have never tried pickled jalapeno peppers, I highly recommend them.  They aren’t generally too spicy and sometimes they come packed with onions and carrots that you can use in other ways.  Many local Mexican restaurants in Houston will serve you a dish of the pickled jalapeno peppers when you have dinner.  I have used these in other recipes, but mostly I am stuffing the pickled jalapeno poppers with cream cheese, but let me tell you, the often stronger taste of goat cheese is sublime with the pickled jalapeno peppers.

    I make a very similar dish, but I use raw jalapenos, stuff with goat cheese and then throw them in the smoke for an hour. The smoking adds flavor and mellows out the peppers. Delish!

    Personally I’ve never liked jalapeno peppers in any form; the flavor just doesn’t sit right with me. Serranos, though smaller, work well with this recipe, though; the flavor is better and they’re only slightly hotter than jalapenos.
