Ingredients

 
  • 6
    pimentos (long thin red sweet peppers)
  • handful
    grated mozzarella
  • 2
    rounds of feta
  • 1/2
    cup
    enchilada sauce (see above) or other spicy sauce

Method

 
Cut the peppers lengthways and remove the seeds. Sprinkle a teaspoon of grated cheese in each half, followed by a slice of feta and a chilli sauce to taste.

Wrap each piece in bacon to prevent the cheese from falling out. Secure with a toothpick.

Braai the open side of the pepper first until the bacon is crispy. You need to work quickly and turn the peppers so that they rest skin-side down on the grid before the cheese melts and runs out. Move the peppers to a cooler part of the grid and braai until they are soft and the bacon is crispy all-round.
