Buffalo chicken and blue cheese is my weakness. The moment I see anything involving the two on a restaurant menu it's all over - no other option stands a chance to be ordered. In fact, I was vegetarian for 7 years (long, long ago) and the thing that made me stop was how badly I was craving buffalo wings! So when I had my most recent craving for the delicious combo I decided I was perfectly capable of satisfying my desires at home instead of going out to eat.
When I made these my friends Dana and Clare were over and they DEVOURED them! They even commented on the fact that each color of bell pepper made the boats taste just a little different - Dana's favorite was the orange, Clare's favorite was the red, and I couldn't pick...they were all so good!
These are also great for this time of year - food for football on Sunday's, warm days yet chilly nights, enjoying the end of season peppers from farmers markets. You'll be pleasantly surprised how easy these are to make. And, really, you could skip the pepper part if you wanted and just make the filling...let's not pretend like the pepper is the star of the show! I would happily eat the buffalo chicken filling by the spoonful. And may or may not have done so while I was making these...
