How to cut Jalapeno: Before you start cutting jalapeño, I would highly "HIGHLY" RECOMMEND putting gloves on your hands, jalapeños are hot and your hands will burn if not using gloves. If you don't have cloves, use 2 zip bags, it is a little uncomfortable but it works. 
Make Ahead Jalapeño Poppers: After stuffing Jalapeño Peppers, place them in air tight container, or on a plate and wrap them thighs with plastic wrapper. Refrigerate, until you are ready to bake them. 
How to store Jalapeno Poppers: Store Baked Jalapeño Poppers inside air thighs container, inside refrigerator for up to 3 days.
