Stuffed Peppadew Peppers with Goat Cheese and Marcona Almonds

Super simple and incredible flavorful, these one-bite stuffed pepper appetizers are very addictive. If you can’t find the Spanish marcona almonds in your supermarket or specialty food store, simply roast raw, skinned almonds with a little olive oil and coarse salt until golden. Find Peppadews at the olive bar of well-stocked markets, or in the grocery aisle next to the jarred olives. Serve with glasses of dry rosé or Barcelona-style gin and tonics.

Make-ahead note: Prepare these up to 4 hours in advance, sprinkling with oregano, black pepper, and drizzling with oil at the last minute.
