Reviews for Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Poppers

"These were absolutely wonderful! I made them according to the recipe and they turned out great! I've made them several times and brought them to parties and every time I get requests for the recipe. It's also the appetizer I get the most requests to bring to a party. I didn't use chili powder but rather bought the dry packet of chili seasoning (as that was what I assumed the recipe was suggesting) and mixed that with the brown sugar. I think it adds a lot more depth of flavor than chili powder alone."
"These were great... used chili powder. Probably could have used less brown sugar, but other than that, they were a hit."
"Awesome :) I used a 4 cheese Mexican blend, little fresh grated parmesan, added a few dashes Worcestershire sauce and 4-5 drops Frank's to the cream cheese, parcooked the bacon and put a strip on top to cover cream cheese vs wrapping, mixed 2 heaping tsps Brown sugar with some chili powder and sprinkled on bacon to kinda glaze the 18 poppers I made. Huge hit and has already been requested for the next party."
"Great recipe, but PLEASE wear gloves !!! Lesson learned as I had a scratch on my ear and reluctantly scratched and it burned all morning and as for my hands they are still burning, but dipping them in a small glass if milk did help take a small amount if the burn away."
