Tips for some chubby stuffed peppers

  • The quality of the ingredients will make the recipe a just approval at a remarkable high. Do not hesitate to buy some good piquillo peppers and of course a good black pudding, the one from Villalba or the one from Lerma (near Aranda) is a great option. It’s close to my girl’s area, we always bring a few when we visit.
  • Although it seems like a lie, the vegetable sauce is key in the recipe. As it is part of the black pudding accompaniment, it will make them soft and with a lot of flavor. We round off the filling with a light sauce, a velouté, which will bring softness and flavor to the filling.
  • Velouté is a clear sauce that is prepared with broth, either from vegetables, meat or fish and fattened with a roux of butter and flour in equal parts. The difference with the bechamel is that the milk is replaced by broth.
  • With this a lighter and tastier sauce is achieved, which will allow the blood sausage to provide all its flavor that does not turn out to be an excessively heavy or forceful dish
  • Don’t go overboard with the salt, remember that the black pudding itself already has. Go testing before adding it so that the filling is not salty. If you like spicy peppers, the black pudding filling goes very well with it, cinnamon and cumin.
