    This is a very clever idea but I only clicked on it because I was curious - I could not tell what it was going to be either from the title or the picture. I agree with craftclarity that a different FIRST picture would draw in a lot more viewers. I would suggest the one with the cleaner inside the pepper before the pepper guts have been taken out.

    But this is a great idea - I think I will make one with a wood handle taken from an old tool as sparkypine suggests - it is a hassle cleaning out the peppers for grilling.

    It's the simplest of ideas that end up being the most profound. This one is simply amazing. Nice work! A low tech version would be to fashion some type of wooden handle in place of the drill so that someone like my wife won't spew jalapeno guts all over the kitchen and hurt herself.

    The first image you put in your 'ible is the one that everyone sees when you publish it. I bet if you put a good pic of the tool in use there you'll get people clicking on it...

    Also, there's a big collection of photo-related 'ibles here—

    I hope my advice is helpful, looking forward to seeing more from you!

    This is a great idea! I love jalapeño poppers, but they are such a hassle to make, but this would make it much easier! Plus, I would get to use my drill in the kitchen, and I'm a big fan of using power tools for literally everything.
