  1. Place the peppers in a jar and pour in the olive oil and vinegar. Add more of each if the peppers are not covered. Allow them to marinate for about 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Arrange the marinated peppers on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender but not browned. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl, mix together the feta cheese and cream cheese. When peppers are cool, spoon some of the cheese mixture into each one and serve. To store, keep in a sealed container with a little bit of olive or vegetable oil.

I loved these. I didn't measure the cream cheese or feta, just eyeballed it (as RR would say). After I added the cream cheese and feta I put them back into the oven until they got golden bubbles. Oh & I couldn't find red jalepenos, so I just used green.

Thank goodness I only did 3 of these to try them! I did scale the serving size to 3. Hubby said the feta completely overpowered, and he has had his share of stuffed jalapenos in the past. I think the ratio of feta to cream cheese should be reversed. I may just skip these and continue making the bacon wrapped grilled jalapenos.

We made these for our wedding reception and they are FANTASTIC! Some of the Jalapenos can be really hot, and there is no way of telling (size doesn't matter!) but the cooling feta is just fantastic. We had a quite a few comments on these being great!

I served these at my Thanksgiving party and they went over great. Not too hot and the cheese combinations were a hit. I used the green jalapenos instead of the red and a 5:2 ratio of feta to cream cheese. Instead of marinating the peppers in olive oil I used vegetable oil and they turned out well.

I really liked how the Jalapenos turned out w/ the marinade and cooking them in the oven. I will definetly keep that part of the recipe. I made half with just plain feta. It was okay. The other half I chopped up baby shrimp and mixed with feta. Those were really good.

I used 5 parts feta to 2 parts cream cheese. I baked them until heated through. They went quickly.

Easy and yummy as a side dish or appetizer. I sprinkled a little cayenne pepper over the tops for a little extra color. Served with chicken tacos and black beans.

These are awesome and so much easier to make than breading and frying. I double and triple the batch cause they go fast at a gathering
