Recipe: Cheese and chilies balls

Appetizers with herbs
January 15, 2010

PeperonciniMy chili plants are still producing few pods, milder but really tasty.
In the picture: Aji Amarillo, Numex Suave Orange, Trinidad Perfume and two Red Paprika pods.
I used all these chilies with some fresh herbs from my garden in this recipe.

I put the cheese balls over lettuce leaves (my last harvest of winter lettuce) and... do you think they look like a Christmas tree, or it's just me sick of Christmas nostalgia?

It does look like a Christmas tree. And I won t get sick of presents like that.

It s so hard for me to find fresh aji amarillo in the US. Lucky you. Your chili gallery is amazing.

Those two Aji Amarillos are the first ones from my plant after two years! They were delicious and I hope I have not to wait another two years.
