This ridiculously easy appetizer will make you the host with the most in minutes! In the Basque region this is a traditional snack or tapas using Piment d'Espelette to bring smoke, sweet and a bit of heat to compliment creamy cheese and the zing of an olive. 

Ingredients

Crackers

Petit Basque Cheese or any creamy mild cheese

Piment d'Ville

Olives

Directions

Place a slice of cheese on each cracker

Melt the cheese under the broiler for a few minutes

Top with a slice of olive

Sprinkle with the Piment d'Ville flavor of your choice.  We like it best with original or spicy.
