Coated, cheesy, fiery and hot – could be the featured cheesy poppers, otherwise the description can easily fit women too. No?
On the pur afsar mauka of the so called ‘International Womens’ Day’ I discovered a plethora of traits that are common to women only – including some of those listed above. In my humble opinion whilst all days are womens’ days only those with substance should be celebrated. The kind who nurture, inspire and have unlimited love to give and who expect nothing in return. Success and fame is limited and time bound – genuine love is what most women should be fondly admired and remembered for.
Only recently a ‘genuine’ friend shared with me that there is always loads to learn from women especially those who have hurt you, since they are the ones who have managed to make the real incisions. Certainly a profound thought for those who have been hurt and are looking for ways to crawl back into peaceful humanity. And at the end of the day women can break or make you – true for men and women alike.
Enough said (although I could possibly write a book on women who have inspired and incised), so the featured cheesy poppers are rather simple to make and my take on a healthier version. An incision is made across the chili, a mixture of cheddar and cream cheese is stuffed in the cavity, and then the chili is coated with egg and crumbs. Once sealed they are baked for half an hour until the chili wall is tender, cheese is melted and coating is crisp.
Ideal for snacks, tea parties or starter to a meal these are simple to assemble, easy to bake and fiery to eat. I served it with Sriracha mayo for the extra kick.
