Stuffed Peppers

We found these during Happy Hour at Chiso’s Grill in Bee Cave, Tx. We’ve since tweaked the recipe a bit. This recipe is just a starting point, add/remove anything you want (like more hot sauce if you’re into that). Sometimes I order the peppers on Amazon. My favorite hot sauces are Franks Red Hot, Jardine’s Texas Champagne, and of course, Yellowbird.

Fun fact: Peppedew Peppers are basically a new thing. They are the brand name of piquante peppers, which were discovered in South Africe in just 1993. Hat tip to Wikipedia for the schooling.


  • 1 jar Peppedew Peppers (or piquante pepper)

  • 4oz goat cheese (any flavor)

  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp sour cream

  • 1 bunch of chives, chopped

  • hearty shot of hot sauce (Franks, Yellowbird)

  • hearty crack of pepper


  • combine goat cheese, mayo, sour cream, 2/3rds of your chives, hot sauce, black pepper

  • if you are feeling spry, beat the mixture to make it fluffy

  • put filling in a plastic bag, snip of the tip with scissors to make a piping bag

  • fill peppers, place in bowl, top with chives and hot sauce
