Stuffed Grilled Jalapenos with Cilantro Lime Drizzle

As with many a subtle seductress, I disregarded the need for proper precautions, those that might have prevented the affects of a potential sting, and I went for it.  They lured me in – sitting in the comfort of their fuzzy green box, with their shiny green exterior and their plump, local, freshness.  I took the bait.
