This popper can be made two ways hot and spicy OR even a baby can eat it mild.

For Mild- Use mild pork sausage and scrape the peppers clean of seeds and membranes.

For Hot and Spicy- Scrap the seeds out but leave the membranes and use Hot Or Medium Pork sausage (Per level of desired heat).

I hate hot stuff and even I can eat the mild version!!! Excellent finger food for a party or holiday get togethers!Enjoy!!!
