Recipe via Kevin is Cooking
- Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature. Move oven rack to middle of oven and turn broiler on.
Dice the salami into small pieces and add to a bowl with the cream cheese. Add the garlic powder and black pepper. Stir to blend thoroughly. (You can customize this part to whatever you want your filling to be!)
Lay the shishito peppers out on a lined baking sheet and see how they lay. With a small paring knife cut a slit down the side facing up on each one (from below stem to almost the tip).
Using a teaspoon, fill the pepper cavity and press sides together to hold cheese salami filling.
Spray all of the stuffed shishitos with cooking spray or olive oil. Place tray in oven and broil for 5 minutes. Shishito peppers should blister and cheese filling turns a golden brown. Serve warm. Makes 30+ depending on size of shishito peppers.
