"Another easy and delicious recipe. They will be a great addition to football season!"
"I made this once with just a few Jalapenos just to give it a try. I just made it again with 5 lbs of them because I can't seem to make enough!! Everyone in my house and my neighbors LOVE THEM !!!"
"Easy and tasty. Everyone loved them."
"These are so yummy!!"
"I didn't like these as much as I thought I would. The cheese just kinda disenegrated. :/"
"I have made these a few times up at our campground. They dissapper...I made them to bring to a "Mexican themed night" and everyone was asking for the recipe. I myself have never tried them, I do not like hot food. Remember to wear disposable gloves when handleing to peppers & removing the seeds. I will be making them for superbowl."
"Our guests enjoyed these poppers. They are super and not the same old same old. Instead of the grill I baked them in the oven. In the last minutes I used the broiler to crisp the bacon a bit more. Terrific"
"Have made these now a half dozen times...each time terrific. Make sure you remove ALL seeds or it will be hot! You can also cook them indoors on sprayed broiler pan for about 1/2 hour at 350 and then stick under broiler for a few minutes."
