I added chopped onions and garlic to the mixture. It doesn't matter how many I make, one time it was 4 dozen, they all go!

Can't believe the recipe allows for 2 poppers per person. lol They do disappear fast, so make lots. Our version has jalapeno half, stuffed with cream cheese, a little smokie sausage on top, wrapped with 1/2 piece of bacon, then grill till done. We never have any left. Enjoy! These are awesome anyway you make them.

i have not tried this recipe but here is a variation i had at a friend's house and it is AWESOME too!! fry 1# ground sausage, drain. mix the sausage with 8 ounces of cream cheese. wear gloves, wash jalapenos, cut off stem and cut in half and take seeds out. fill with sausage/cream cheese mixture, wrap a whole slice of bacon around jalapeno and place on baking sheet and bake @ 350 degrees till bacon and jalapeno's are done. the amount of jalapeno's vary according to the amount of sausage/cream cheese mixture u have. SCRUMPTIOUS!!!!

I make this recipe all the time! Do some with and without the cheddar. Some people like them both ways.Definitely avoid the face after the peppers though! If peppers touch your skin, rinse off with lemon juice, then soak in milk. They'll feel better!
