It was good. But make sure you wear gloves when you cut up jalapenos I didn't know about this and the oil from the seeds burned my hands for days.

I used turkey sausage instead of pork. They were great, everyone at work loved them.

how about a reduced fat cream cheese and the turkey sausage--should reduce fat and calories a little. These sound wonderful??

These are great for the LCHF diet. The serving size is 4 halves. Tons of flavor.
