I just made this today. The only difference is that I used canned diced jalapeno. I know it's going to be scrumptious because I licked my fork after I was done making the ball to chill. Can't hardly wait til I can roll it in the bacon and jalapenos to chill again ... THEN SERVE :))=

How was the final result?

Very, very good :)))
