Padrón peppers have a poblano-like flavor and can be as mild as a bell pepper or as fiery as a habanero (or anywhere in between). Serve the grilled peppers with other tapas, like cheese, salumi, olives and Marcona almonds.
Tips: Padrón peppers are Spanish heirloom peppers closely related to Japanese shishito peppers. Once hard to find in the U.S., the mini peppers are now common at farmers' markets and specialty grocers.
