First need to say that there wasn't one left on the plate. However I gave it a four star rating because I myself could not eat another one my mouth was on fire. However everyone else didn't seem to think so. I think like one person said it's a gamble if you get a hot one or not. Someone that likes the heat this is for them. I think the spices add to the heat. My husband loved them. However please please ensure that you wear gloves when working with peppers. After washing my hands I accidently touched my eye and had to flush it iout. GLOVES are a must!
Had the family over they ate them before I could even get them off the grill. Everybody loved them.
It took a lot longer for the peppers to get soft for me - more like 25 - 30 minutes at 375f. Unfortunately, the peppers were not hot enough for me. Next time I'll make from my garden since they are ready to pick now! I think I will double up on the herbs as well.
I've made this recipe a couple of times--so good. One change is I used mini peppers instead of jalapeno. The colored ones makes a pretty dish.
