A few months ago, Bud and I visited a restaurant, Proof and Cooper, out in the hill country. They’re known for their craft cocktails, but their food happens to be fantastic as well! In addition to the out-of-this-world pimento cheese burger I enjoyed for dinner, I also tried shishito peppers for the first time. I was blown away by the flavor. They were super savory with just the perfect amount of spice. The dipping sauce that was served on the side took the dish to the next level. Since trying shishito peppers for the first time, I’ve been dying to make them at home! But, I haven’t even seen the peppers at the grocery store. I ventured to Trader Joe’s last weekend and finally found the peppers I was looking for!
