We have been making these for several years, we love them. We sometimes make them just for the 2 of us & enjoy the leftovers. We have also served them when friends come over & they are a big hit.

My husband loves these so much that he makes them to take to work and share with "the guys." He even makes a half dozen using habaneros. Hot and Tasty!

We have loved this recipe for years! I have taken to baking them in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 then grilling on medium for about 10 minutes more (to get the grilled flavor) because I was having massive grill flare-ups and burning them. I also use metal skewers instead of toothpicks - 3 or 4 to a skewer makes them easier to turn and handle.

Great recipe - got rave reviews! Had to grill them awhile longer, but it was worth the wait!
