An Appetizer a Day

I've not been able to bring myself to put this recipe card away since our trip to Indiana. I took it, along with some jalapenos from Ruth's garden, and made these tasty little boogers for our family's Fourth of July get together. I think Jason and Lyndon each had, uh, 10. What a perfect blend of cheese and spicy-ness. I baked them long enough to get rid of most of the fire, but they still had a pleasant warmth to them. They're not for the faint of heartburn.

Now that I've been commissioned to man Ruth's garden while they're on a trip, I think I'll snatch me some more of them there peppers and dream up a celebration to make them again.

Disclaimer: If you want to try your hand at this recipe, wear gloves when you slice and seed the jalapenos. You will not be happy with me if you don't.

I'm sure my husband would love those! (beautiful picture, by the way)

Mmmm, they sound fabulous. I'm not sure I would have known that the longer you bake jalepenos the less spicy they are. I'll have to file away that bit of information for the future.
