Piquillo Peppers

The piquillo pepper is a variety of chili traditionally grown in Northern Spain over the town of Lodosa. Its name is derived from the Spanish word for "little beak" as they have a triangular shape. The peppers are roasted over a wood fire which gives them an incredible sweet and spicy flavor. They are perfect for tapas as they can be easily filled with just about anything you can think of. The good news is that piquillo peppers are pre-roasted and ready to eat right out of the jar or can. I will leave you with this simple yet very elegant recipe from Chef John from Foodwishes.
