Good good good. Easy to make. Cooking time should be longer how the recipe is it comes out pretty rare. I up it about 10min or so

I love cilantro so I decided to try this..... Love the jalapeno jelly spread on the top, adds delicious flavor. Did not really dig the stuffing! A bit too mushy feeling. The flavor of the stuffing was good. Next time I think when I melt the jelly will add the cilantro to that and enjoy the two flavors that stood out the most to me.
