    Absolutely delicious!! Definitely will be making again! The bacon added great flavor with the spice of the jalapeno.

    Really good! I used spicy jalapeno spreadable cream cheese rather than plain. I made 3 10" quesadilla rather than 4 8" and baked them in my quesadilla maker.

    Used regular cream cheese & microwaved just a bit. They are really good! A great way to use the abundance of jalapenos from the garden.
