Just wanted to say that I made a version of besotes calientes (Rosana mentioned having them at a restaurant) for a party last night and they were a HUGE hit! I simply blanched peppers (had jalapeno and hungarian wax handy), seeded them, stuffed them with a mixture of artificial crab, vidalia onion, and cream cheese, wrapped a piece of bacon around the pepper, secured it with a tooth pick, and threw the little bugger in the hot oil. Quite tasty I must say. The bacon is actually alot easier than gettin all sloppy with the batter (not so much fun, but neater), but watch the oil when you put them in cus the water in the bacon makes the oil a bit spastic.
