a rather ridiculous comment to make, since all appetizers aren't spicy. For people who like spicy bites, this is a great appetizer to make. Don't judge recipes or people because they don't reflect your own taste
A friend brought these to an event I hosted and they were so delicious that I made them the very next day for my family. Since then, I've made these monthly, often 2x a month. Cooking jalapeños really reduces the heat factor - these aren't like eating a raw jalapeño or really hot salsa. If you don't want any heat you can use mini sweet peppers - I do that for my kids and they gobble them up.
Removing the seeds & membranes from the peppers reduces the heat, but you can substitute mini sweet peppers for the jalapeños. And, if you don't like cilantro, just use parsley.
I bet green onions or chives would work well.
Why are all appetizers spicy hot? I, along with a lot of people, cannot eat spicy or piping hot food.
I am wondering about a substitute for the cilantro. I know many people who do not like it. Please share. Thanks,
