  • 12 large jalapeno peppers
  • 1 pkg soft cream cheese
  • 12 slices bacon
  1. Preheat the oven or grill to 225F

  2. To prepare the jalapenos I recommend wearing some food handlers gloves or non-powdered surgical gloves. The oils on the peppers can linger on your hands even after you have washed them. This can be quite painful if you forget and rub your eyes.

  3. Cut the top of each jalapeno pepper and remove the seeds and membrane. Use a vegetable peeler or use a special tool designed for this.

    Hollowed out jalapeño peppers.
  4. Fill each pepper with cream cheese to the top.
