"I would also roast or bake the jalapenos. I would add some shredded cheddar cheese and maybe some onions or garlic to the cream cheese. Maybe add salsa as a side dip. I would definitely use fresh jalapenos from the store if not from the garden."

"I would roast the Jalapenos or any chile in the oven first and I might add a Tablespoon or two of salsa (blended smooth) to the cream cheese. I'm going to try it."

"Try instead of pickled jalapenos, try fresh ones. proceed as stated in the recipe here and fill with softened cream cheese, then wrap a slice (or 1/2 slice) around the pepper.

Bake in 350 to 400 oven until bacon is crisp."
