Is there a way to filter/customize the output of the recent custom post widget?

Hey there!

I have a custom post, and I am using the Recent Custom Posts widget to spit the results out onto my homepage. This custom post type has a bunch of custom content being placed with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin.

Is there a way to customize the output of the Recent Custom Post widget to pull in some of the custom data from Advanced Custom Fields?

I went into the plugin file itself and found where the content output was being built out, but I don't see a custom filter allowing me to change it.

Do I have to hard code my changes? I'd hate to do it this way, since my work could be lost in the next update.

Any suggestions?

Cheers!
