Cubanelle Peppers and Cheese Sauce
August 8th, 2010|Filed Under Recipes, Side Dishes

Do Manhattanites really just not care?  I’ve never played sports, felt the need to win or ever be the best. I just wanted to just make it. I do have ambition, just not that crazy competitive streak that a lot of financial cokeheads have. Have you seen when a contestant on a reality show looses?  It’s as if their entire life is crumbling before them and they’re about to commit suicide. I never felt the desire to win until last weekend when I competed in the Brooklyn Hot Dog Cook-Off.

To make a long story short, I was in it to win it. I wanted to spray the streets of Brooklyn with hipster blood and use skinny jeans as an alternative fuel source for my coal. Well, turns out the reason I’ve never competed in anything was because of my total fear of failure. It was really confronting to face this.  I’ve actually never competed in anything in 32 years. I spent hours thinking of what to make. I forgot to mention, I hate hotdogs and hate Brooklyn. So I decided to make an old family spread that my mom would make for us. It has cheese and cubanelle peppers that are all cooked together and used as a side to a loaf of bread. How could I lose?

Well my hotdogs weren’t good enough for the Section 8 dwellers of Brooklyn and I ended up losing. They just don’t get me. When creating this I imagined 2 people eating it. Number one, my mother. She eats anything so that was a sure vote. Secondly, I wondered if this would be acceptable for Chelsea Handler’s coslopus. Just like Heather McDonalds pride, I’m sure this would slip right in, make itself comfy and ride that train for 5 years.

P.s. Brad Wollack, you rock! You still boyz with Wayne Brady? Or Chel put the kabosh that?

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Butter

3 Cubanelle Peppers – Sliced

1 Scallion – chopped

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Pepper

5 oz Whipped Cream Cheese

5 oz French Feta Cheese

Heat a pot over medium heat for 5 minutes. Once hot, add your olive oil, butter, peppers, salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, constantly stirring and then add your scallion. Cook for about 5 more minutes until your peppers are soft. Once softened, turn heat down to medium low, add the cream cheese and feta. Keep mixing until all the cheese is melted. Serve with sausages, bread, or a hotdog.
