Texas has a world of artisanal goat cheese makers and many make out-of-this-world cheeses--dill goat cheese, roasted garlic goat cheese, rosemary fig goat cheese just to name a few. Use regular goat cheese (if there is such a thing?) for this recipe. the full-flavored, tangy touch pairs wonderfully with the smoked tomatoes.
