    you are right 1 half of a pepper is not one serving. But, I am like Miss Kitty - would conider one halve of pepper as one serving so, its easier for me to track my food intake - knowing how I can't stop at 8 or 10 or 12 or more!!! - 4/4/09

    These were a hit as hors d'oeuvres at an office lunch, but they were labor intensive - and be careful handling those jalapenos! - 1/8/09

    I made something similar with the stuffed pepper halves rolled in Japanese bread crumbs for some crunch. A few more calories, but way better than deep fried. - 11/9/08

    Try them with minced cooked chicken mixed with cheese sauce made with 0.1% milk and topped with grated parmesan. - 2/16/10

    I used ground turkey. It was fairly decent. I don't know that I'd make it again, because it's a little labor-intensive. - 12/11/08
