    Fantastic! I made this for a friends Holiday party last week and they were so easy and such a hit that I'm about to head into the kitchen and make again for Christmas Eve dinner at my relatives. I added a bit of garlic powder and crushed red pepper for a bit of a kick and more flavor. These tasted great considering how easy and few ingredients were involved.

    I made then for a Christmas party, the only thing I did different, I had a bowl of bread crumbs and kraft Mexican cheese blend and I dunked the filled peppers in the mix... I wish I could give my personal review, but I can't.... I set them out, cleaned up the baking dish turned around and they were all gone.....!!!! So I am assuming they were delicious...!!

    I made these with my granddaughter a couple of days ago and we devoured them. Then my son heard about them and he was a little annoyed that we didn't save him any as he "LOVES" them. So tonight I made them again and he said, "These are the best ones I have ever had and I have ordered them in many restaurants"! So there you are Sarah....a big big hit with us. I will be making these often and sooooooo easy to do!! Thank you loads!

    Made these this week and they were awesome! I cleaned out all the seeds and ribs and even rinsed out the jalapeno halves and they were not spicy at all. I like some spice, so next time I won't rinse them and I might leave a little of the ribs in. After they came out of the oven and cooled a bit, they were gone in minutes!
