This is a great appetizer and a hit at any party! They get eaten up quickly. You can't tell how hot a jalapeno is, no matter how good you clean them. It's fun to watch people as they take a bite, wondering if the pepper will "bite back" at them. I always make 38 peppers...mostly I double the recipe. I grow jalapenos in my garden, and when they are ready, I get my chili grill out and go to town! I will tell you, this recipe does take time to make. Usually, I will clean the jalapenos and place in a covered bowl in the fridge overnight. The next day I make the stuffing and cook them. You MUST wear rubber gloves to clean them! Believe me, I found out the hard way. First time I made them, I woke up in the middle of the night with my hands burning! If you do not heed my warning, soak your hands in a bowl of milk until the pain goes away. I cook my jalapenos in a chili grill so they cook upright. My grill holds 38 peppers. If you have any extra filling, freeze it. Next time you want to make peppers, you have the stuffing! I have tried different filling combination's, and this one seems to be the party favorite. Feel free to add your own filling ideas as there are a million possibilities.
