MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2013

With what's given they are ok, an easy way to modify is to add parmesan cheese, and chili powder (never enough), and GRILL them, they are wonderful!! My dad requests these every fathers day, and any grilling day!

I wrap a piece of bacon around it and grill it. You can also bake it or sear in a pan.

I thought this was only so-so. I took this to a New Year's Day party and they were barely touched. Maybe they would be better baked.

They were very delicious but this having been my first time dealing with jalapenos, I didn't read your warning on gloves and ended up with burns! haha. Next time, I'll know! :)
