1) Thaw the puff pastry sheet on the counter for 30 minutes.
2)Remove the skin of smoked cheddar and slice it as thick or thin as desired. I did it about 1/6".
3)In the mean time heat olive oil in a skillet. Drop the mushroom, saute, add a pinch salt, chilly flakes and garlic. When the moisture is all evaporated, add the capsicum cook for a couple of minutes. Set aside and cool.
4)Preheat oven to 350 F.
5)For the puff pastry sheets, flour the counter lightly. Cut the 2/3 of the sheet into two vertical pieces. Roll out the cut sheets slightly.
6) Then cut each of the pieces in two.
7)Now take the puff pastry pieces. Lay the cheese slices on one side of the pastry sheet leaving half the sheet empty, then place a tablespoon of filling on the cheese slice.
8)Cover the filling with the empty half sheet. Pinch the edges to close. Repeat the process to get 4 puffs.
Place the puffs on a non stick baking tray and bake for about 15-20 minutes till the golden brown.
