Padron Peppers Skewered with Chorizo
If you’ve been following the news, you may have caught wind of the spicy food buzz. Rumor has it that those who frequently ingest spicy food, specifically prepared with fresh and dried chili peppers, may be eating their way to a longer life. True or not, spicy food has taken over my thoughts, and kitchen. One of my favorite summertime tapa-style dishes to make is Martha Stewart’s Padron Peppers Skewered with Chorizo. To make, you’ll need:
- 24 Padron Peppers
- 24 1-inch pieces of Hot Dried Chorizo
- Sea salt
Soak 12 wooden skewers for about 30 minutes. Then fire your grill up to medium-high. Thread two peppers and two chorizo pieces onto each skewer. Grill, turning often, until charred, which will take about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt, and you’ll be in spicy food nirvana.
