Cherry Street Farmers Market

I recently visited the Cherry Street Farmers Market. The farmer’s market is a good place to grab great deals on the freshest produce, while helping support local farmers. While at the farmers market I came across Canyon Ridge Farms located in Wells, Oklahoma, who make a fantastic locally made goat cheese. If you have never trieA photograph taken at the Cherry Street Farmers Marketd goat cheese, you should.  It tastes like cream cheese on over-drive with a sharp kick! Canyon Ridge Farms’ cheese is the best I have tasted in a long time.  Once I tried their Jalapeno Goat Cheese, I immediately had visions of a Jalapeno Popper.

Jalapeno Chicken That Pops

To kick up the traditional jalapeno popper, I used the Jalapeno Goat Cheese to stuff into a chicken breast, wrapped the whole thing in bacon and drizzled it with a touch of fresh made Ranch Dressing. How can you not love that?
