This are a BIG hit! We grilled them in the first phase as the recipe instructs, but then popped them in the oven after stuffing with cream cheese mixture. It worked great. A few were leftover and were good cold the next day. Another tip: We seed and grill the peppers and make the cream cheese mixture ahead, then we ready to serve we stuff the peppers and heat again. Yummy and easy!
