Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

While pinning away the other night on Pinterest I came across a few recipes for mini sweet peppers.  They all looked good and the one with goat cheese and pesto went to the top of my list of try asap.  I was telling my mom about this she said she had seen a recipe with goat cheese and chorizo stuffed peppers.  HOLD THE PHONE I love the goat cheese and chorizo flavor combination so this became a I NEED to make these yesterday recipe.  I ran not walked to the grocery store this morning and gathered all that I need and whipped these babies up for lunch today.  Yup I had an "appetizer" for lunch  So glad I did these will be in the rotation of lunch and appetizers for long time.  I can also think of a least dozen other stuffing options that I will be playing with soon so keep checking back for more ideas.

5 oz Chorizo 
6 sweet mini peppers
2 oz goat cheese
1 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper

PreHeat oven to 400
In a med fry pan over med heat cook the chorizo approximately 10 min until thoroughly cooked. Remove from the pan and drain over paper towel  Set aside while it drains.  
Cut the peppers open remove the seeds place each half on a cookie sheet.  Drizzle the peppers with olive oil sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.  then remove from oven stuff each pepper with about 1 tsp of chorizo when all have been stuffed return pan to the oven for another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and crumble the goat cheese over the peppers and return to oven for about 2 minutes until the goat cheese just starts to get soft.
