    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!

    I have made a similar version of this for years using garden herb cream cheese and cheddar cheese without all the spices and bacon and thought I would give this a try at our labor day picnic. They got rave reviews, were simple to make and packed the heat! Yummo!

    I've always loved fried jalapeno poppers, so to tell you the truth, I was a little leary about trying this baked version. Now I'm not sure I'll EVER go back to that mess of frying again! These were just fantastic! I have a ton of fresh jalapenos in my garden, so this is a great recipe to use - and I love that this can be a "do-ahead" recipe with successful results. {{Thanks Wildflour}}
