These were very good and I'll definitely be making them again. I did make a few modifications to give it a little more flavor: I sauted the peppers in 2tsp. vegetable oil. I added about 1/2 tsp of garlic powder Increased the Old Bay Seasoning to 1 1/4 tsp Added a little bit of cheddar cheese in addition to the Monterey Jack. Again, these are quick to make and delicious.
