Takes Two to Tango… Maybe Three

26 Oct

Finger foods are the backbone of any house party. While we sip those martinis and fancy wines, our appropriate level of class is maintained by nibbling to help slow down the sometimes rapid absorption of alcohol. In my grown years, I’ve tried to graduate beyond slapping some velveeta cheese into a bowl and calling it a day. Although this simplicity would appeal to any host, most dips and appetizers require much more attention. I rarely take the easy way out when it comes to food; chopping and dicing are my therapy. I have no fear being honest however about my velveeta approach to throwing a party. I love having people over and after one too many midnight cleanup disasters, I have learned to ease up on the preparation. My good friend Liz over at  Cave Girl Eats enlightened me on the perfect appetizer a little while ago. Being the carnivore that I am, I couldn’t help but add a third ingredient. This recipe truly is only two or three ingredients and will blow all of your guests away!

  • Goat cheese
  • Roasted sweet red picadillo peppers
  • Chorizo sausage
Stuff the peppers with goat cheese and skewer on a toothpick. Add a slice of chorizo sausage if you’d like. Serve with a medium bodied, spicy red wine like Pinot Noir or Grenache.
