Been making these for YEARS now! Got it from an old TOH issue crediting Lisa Byington of Port Crane, New York. My "ultimate" tweak: instead of bread crumbs, I use finely crushed tortilla chips from all the busted up, broken chips at the bottom of the bag... (especially flavored tortilla chips like chili lime or Doritos) and press them into the cheese. I don't fiddle with trying to coat the whole pepper like some of the reviewers have. Perfect every time and never fails to be a huge hit!

Yummy! Making these to take to a tailgate party tomorrow but had to make a few to sample today. Very good, I'll be holding on to this one! Thanks!
