Ahead of time you need to make the simple syrup. All this requires is one part water to one part sugar boiled into a mixture and then cooled. Simple. Syrup.
So you muddle a few sprigs of mint at the bottom of your pint glass and fill the rest with ice.
Add to your glass:
1 Tbsp simple syrup
1/3 Cup Woodford Reserve bourbon (my favorite)
Stir it all up.
Add a sprig of mint for garnish. Enjoy. Carefully. They're tasty but they can sneak up on you like a come from behind race horse.
One pack of cream chese
1/2 onion finely diced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 chorizo sausage.
So I cut the peppers lengthwise and removed the seeds and membranes. Then you stuff 'em. Then you wrap 'em in bacon. The internet taught me that the secret here is using thin, cheap bacon to get it crispy. I made a vegetarian turd for one of our friends (no chorizo or bacon). Here's what they look like ahead of time.
And here they were after I cooked them for about 25 minutes at about 350f. I probably over cooked these out of concern for getting the chorizo cooked all the way. A good bit of the filling had melted out, but they disappeared in no time. Everyone loved them. I still have a good bit of the filling and bacon left, so I may run back to get more peppers and whip up some more.
