Stuffed Piquillo Peppers

Spanish-style tapas, appetizer-sized portions that allow you savor a variety of flavors at a single meal. Piquillos are small, red, spicy-sweet roasted Spanish peppers; look for them in gourmet groceries...I've found them in Pensacola, I'm sure they are available. I've also successfully subbed Cherry Bomb Peppers, grown abundantly here in the south and roasted them myself. This recipe also uses Spanish manchego cheese. Serving size is for tapas size servings, not main dish, although these could be served as a main dish.....just for 2 or 3.
