MY REVIEW

My husband is so proud of himself when he makes a batch of these for a gathering! We have been making these for a few years now and everyone loves them! He is always asked to make more for the next function! We sometimes substitute baby bell peppers for the jalapeno's for those folks who can't handle a little heat. We also partially cook regular pork bacon before wrapping around peppers to bake. We don't care for turkey bacon..We often stuff them the night before and wrap & bake just before serving.
