    Ooh, I need to do this for sure. We often do bell peppers and quinoa but it would be fun to do something like this as an appetizer.

    I could eat these right now and it’s only 9 AM. Goat cheese and ricotta is currently my favorite mix of cheese. I use it straight up as a dip sometimes. These little mini peppers are everywhere around me right now at farm stands, can’t wait to try these.
