    oven temp is just enough to melt the cheese and soften the peppers

    I'm going to try this, but I might put some smoke on them

    I make these in tbe smoker with cream cheese, plus jack or cheddar, pork rub and shrimp inside, and wrapped with bacon

    that would be good

    I also think using sushi grade tuna would be awesome, you'd get it cooked medium rare in the pepper...

    that does sound good, I usually cook them til the bacon is nearly crisp, how do you know when they're done?

    Oh wait, you said when the cheese is melted

    you can use picked jalapenos instead of fresh ones as well

    can be served cold that way w/o the mont jack on top

    I'm not trying to be a dick, bro, but that sounds awful and looks even worse.

    Not a food snob by any means and loved stuffed jalapenos. But I would probably "accidentally" drop those in the dirt. Just does not sound good. But enjoy.
