Happy Hour Friday. Crazy food combination melts in your mouth.

I admit, I really like food. Just so you understand, I really like to eat. I mean, really. And while I consider myself adventurous, I was still quite surprised when I came across the following on the popular Portland restaurant The Tin Shed Happy Hour Menu. Then I took a bite and WOW. The craziest combination was an explosion of YUM in my mouth.
Not hard to replicate--if you can't make it to the Tin Shed try this at home. 

Berry Garcia (their name)
Roasted red pepper, jalapeno, black bean, Tillamook cheddar & berry jam, topped with jalapeno-cilantro creme fraiche. 4-

It's the combination of the sweet pepper, the hot pepper, the creaminess of the cheese, the bite of the bean, and the sweetest of the jam (use just a little) makes it combine to the most delightful flavor. Made from pantry ingredients, a snack that could be made when the fridge is looking sad and empty.
