Padrón peppers with bacon and honey - Padrón peppers (sometimes called "Russian Roulette" peppers because most are mild, but the occasional one will blow your head off!) are normally simply fried in olive oil with salt, but this is a tasty variation. If you want to be a little more authentic, you can use panceta instead of bacon.
