    My maid of honor served these at my bridal shower and they were delicious! All the women there couldn’t believe it was diet food!!!

    These are very easy to make (just don’t touch your face with your hands after handling the jalapenos!!). Very tasty and spicy!

    These were a big hit. Make sure you wear gloves or somthing when you are taking the seeds out! I did find a home remedy that seems to work well for the Jalapeno burn. I used rubbing alcohol as a swab. Took the burn away with in a few minutes.

    I’ve tried to make these before and they were very tasty. I topped mine with a little bit of whole wheat breadcrumbs or maybe Fiber One cereal after running it through the food processor.

    Also, I’ve found that if they are a bit too hot, you can always soak the peppers in milk for a little while before stuffing.
