Remember, the dairy (cream cheese), sweetness (brown sugar) and the heat will all conspire to kill the heat in the jalapenos. The only time I've had spicy ABTs was when I was careless about scraping out the innards and undercooked them so the jalapenos were still a bit crunchy.
Just a few points based on my own experience...
There have been many manty times that I've gone and cleaned the peppers very carefully and still ended up with some obnoxious ones in the mix.
The spice-heat-mouthfeel shouldn't be affected by cooking.
