I know, I know, I thought the same thing when my mom told me we were having them Christmas Eve. I WAS WRONG!!!! THESE THINGS ARE FANTASTIC!!! She did cut the jalepenos to one. My wife doesn't like jalepenos or hot things-LOVED THESE!!! Really, give them a try. They also keep in the freezer-how convenient! I served the second half at my house 2 days later.
