Sunday is grill-out day for my husband, Cliff, and these zesty peppers are some of his specialties. We usually feature them at our annual Daytona 500 party. They disappear from the appetizer tray in no time.

We love stuffed jalapeno peppers and these are the best so far. They are even good cold out of the fridge. Peppers are large and plentiful in the garden this year and I made two batches this week-end and had no leftovers. Absolutely YUMMY !!
