I absolutely love jalapeño poppers!  This was a great way to incorporate them into my dinner!

Be sure to wear gloves when you seed the jalapeños.  Removing the seeds and inner membranes helps control the spice levels.

I did these up on the grill but you can also bake them at 350 for about 30 minutes or until juices run clear and temperature reaches 165 degrees.
