        I prefer Cajun Kisses. Made with a large Jalepeno, flattened Chicken Fillet very small, Monterey Jack Cheese in the middle, wrap a piece or 2 of Bacon around season with Cajun Spice, put 1 or 2 toothpicks through and grill or bake in oven on 350° until done.

  2. Making this tonight, cant wait. One quick note to everyone making this dish. The amount of cream cheese and cheese mixture is Way too much. Unless you are using Squash size Jalapenos. I will follow up with my afterthoughts tonight…

  3. Awesome taste, the outcome was great!!!!

      Glad you enjoyed them David!

  4. ANY alternative way to cook in oven

    1. Hi Mary! You can easily bake these in the oven. Simply bake them at 350°F for 25-30 minutes and they should be perfectly done. You will want to baste them with the bbq sauce as listed in the recipe as well.
