Tips

Substitute: Substitute 3 large red, yellow or green bell peppers, each cut into 6 triangles, for the jalapeno pepper halves. Top with cheese mixture before baking as directed.

Special Extra: Add 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) to the cream cheese mixture before spooning into peppers.

Substitute: Prepare using KRAFT Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese or KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese.

How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers: When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.

These are awesome. I have made them many times for parties, however, I boil my jalapenos for approximately 5 minutes prior to stuffing. It takes a little bite out of the pepper and makes it softer once baked. Always a crowd pleaser. Sure to disappear Read More

I have made these twice now and will probably make them again and again while I have hot peppers in my garden. Last night a friend who was here for dinner asked me if she could have the 3 that were left to take home with her. Following another reviewer's tip I boiled the peppers for 5 minutes before stuffing them. They were delicious. Read More

I made these and they were a hit! My mother and aunt (both born and raised in Poland) have never eaten jalapeños and don't really do spicy (unlike me) so I did as another reviewer suggested and boiled them for a few minutes prior to stuffing. This definitely took away some of the kick and because of that they managed to polish off half of them by themselves! Love this recipe though next time I might skip boiling so I can enjoy the intensity of the pepper. Read More

Just made these today and there were amazing! I used precooked bacon bits and that made prep even faster. Everyone loved them and I liked how easy they were to make. Next time I will wear gloves to seed the peppers as getting the jalapeño juice in open cuts hurts a lot. Read More
