STUFFED "PIQUILLO" PEPPERS:

As we have already seen, "piquillo" peppers are an exquisite dish. This product can be found on the menus of the finest restaurants, in all of the different recipes and forms that its culinary versatility permits.

CHISCO prepares its peppers in the most traditional way. The quality of the product is carefully monitored and the peppers are roasted in a wood-fired oven so that this delicacy reaches your table with its exceptional properties intact. Chisco has taken advantage of these qualities and prepared delicate peppers stuffed with:

 

COD:

Chisco selects the finest cod that the sea can offer, along with fresh prawns and a delicate béchamel sauce to stuff its wood roasted peppers, which are then accompanied by a light sauce made from tomato, "piquillo" peppers, garlic, onion, olive oil and salt.

The result is an extremely tasty dish.

 

HAKE AND PRAWNS:

Chisco selects fine hake and prawns and adds creamy béchamel sauce to stuff its "piquillo" peppers and accompanies them with a tomato and pepper sauce. The result is a delicate dish to please all tastes.

MEAT:

Our peppers stuffed with meat are made up of a mixture of select pork and beef in a creamy béchamel sauce and accompanied by a fine sauce made from peppers, tomato, olive oil, garlic, onion and salt.

All you have to do is take the "piquillo" peppers from the can and heat them in the microwave or Bain Marie and they are ready to serve, "heat and serve". They can also be served in an egg and flour batter.
