I am not recommending that you have your children try these by any means. We have our kids try everything once, and if they don’t like it, they don’t have to eat it anymore. Because our boys were already eating jalapenos, we felt they could handle these, and we were right! To this day, they get excited when they see these stuffed jalapenos in the oven!
