I made some for hubby and I, cutting it down to two servings. Well, I should have made the whole batch, because we couldn't leave them alone until they were gone! They were a little hot for us, because I used larger green jalapenos, but we managed to make them disappear! We will have them again real soon.

Wonderful ! I mixed in some shredded cheddar the 2nd time I made these and used my smoker for 2 hours using cherry wood and finished under the oven broiler to crisp up. They disappeared quickly!Thanks Bea!

These have very good flavor! They would have been perfect except they tend to leak cheese somewhat and the bacon falls off with the first bite. I think maybe skewering them with a toothpick might be helpful in that regard, but not sure. It's worth a try. Thanks for sharing! Reviewed for billboard tag.
