Goat cheese lends a nice tang and creaminess to these stuffed mini peppers but if you’re not a fan of goat cheese, feel free to replace the goat cheese with onion and chive whipped cream cheese or a vegetable flavored whipped cream cheese works great too. The honey is optional in this recipe, omit if using whipped cream cheese.
If you have a few extra minutes and aren’t pressed for time, try roasting the mini peppers first before filling them with the garlic and herb goat cheese or cream cheese mixture. Roasting the peppers will soften them slightly, adds to the peppers natural sweetness and gives the peppers a more rustic look and visual appeal. We have made them both ways and like them equally the same either way.
Goat cheese stuffed mini peppers makes a great vegetable “side” dish along side a grilled steak, chicken breast or pork tenderloin. Add a twice baked potato and you’ll have a fantastic meal. Wine Suggestion: Chianti
