  1. These recipes look marvelous, except for all the bacon. Nearly every photo showed bacon. Yes, I like bacon, but not in every recipe. I have a lot of jalapeños in my garden and intend to try some of these recipes, but in the future tone down the usage of bacon. Like onions, it can be over done.

  2. Cant wait to try more of these jalapeno popper recipes. Ive already tried, love and continue to make the jalapeno popper chicken casserole. Love this page.
