These are absolutely delicious! I baked mine, however (400 degrees for about 25 min). The sweetness of the red jalapenos makes for a wonderful aftertaste. I made these with and without the seeds and also with both green and red jalapenos. The red jalapenos without the seeds are the best! I've made these 3 times in the past month! Perfect for a Sunday afternoon nibble! I imagine some white wine...pinot grigio perhaps, would go wonderfully with these...if I try it I'll post again. Thanks for this recipe!
