    Excellent. The tomato-onion sauce went really well with the peppers and cheese. We like the look of the blackened skins but would probably peel them next time. Served along with CL's Chipotle Black Bean Dip and CL's Yucatan Shrimp Cocktail Salad. Recommend.

    I've made these twice now. The ranchero sauce is very very good, definitely a 5 star rating. I served the leftover sauce with pierogies and that was unexpectedly great! The stuffed jalapenos are *very* hot since it's touch to get all of the membrane out, especially on the stem end. Definitely an eye-watering treat. They are also pretty messy. Next time I might slice them in half completely, to help with the heat and with the mess.

    Let me say I had a blast making this! The salsa recipe was very good. I would add fresh cilantro next time though. I would also use large Jalapenos. We had some smaller ones and they were hard to clean and stuff. My wife is from the Southwest and they peel the skins off their chilies there. The recipe did not call for the skins to be peeled and the picture had the skins intact. I tried it both ways and prefer skin peeled. Otherwise this was very good and lots of fun with the family in the kitchen!

    These were fantastic! It made a TON of sauce.

    The sauce was great. I diced the onions in the sauce instead of slicing them - better texture. Next time I would remove fewer of the seeds from the jalapenos for more of a kick. They were fairly bland with the filling.
