LOVE these. My question, can you freeze them? I have too many jalapeno peppers and do not want them to go to waste so was wondering if I could stuff them and then freeze them.

Fantastic!! I have a lot of appetizer parties and these are always on the list. Can alway use different cheeses to mix it up a bit. A real winner!

I would give this 5 stars, but the prep time is more like an hour. That's annoying when you are watching the clock.

I made these.. but I used green, yellow & red bell pepper long wedges and then added the filling and baked as on the recipe! every1 loved them and I was also happy to know that I could switch out the hotties and use bell peppers instead! another way I did these were to cook the filling and smear n2 flour tortillas and roll up - cut n 1/2 to make little sandwiches (I sometimes add scrambled eggs to the filling) different! no hot peppers allowed!

I can't tell you how many batches of these jalapenos I've made or how many times I've been asked for the recipe since I found it over 8 years ago. All I know is they are delicious and a huge hit every time I make them or take them anywhere.

I have made these often...Love them! Don't leave in oven too long, the longer they cook the hotter the peppers seem to get! They will disappear in no time. I switch up a lot of recipes, but this one I make as is...I use low fat sausage though. Good!

My daughter made this for my husband and I and we feel in love with the recipe. Now I have made a double batch for 5 - 2 "step"-sons, a nephew, a wife and a girlfriend! They were gone almost before I blinked and LOVED them! Thank you Rachel Oswald!!!
