Jalapeno poppers (i.e. jalapeno peppers stuffed and typically fried or wrapped in bacon) have been popular for some time, but I’ve noticed they are inconsistent.  Some are incredibly spicy, while others have almost no kick at all.  This recipe relies on the small, jalapeno sized sweet peppers instead and the spiciness is dictated by the filling, not the vessel.
