    Substituted precooked bacon to make them less greasy. Reduced baking time to 10 minutes.

    These are so simple to prepare and delicious! I took the cream ycheese right from the fridge and cut it across the width and then cut it in half again. The cream cheese was easy to handle and the pieces fit right into the jalapenos.

    I have been making this recipes for years and it is a real hit. The only changes I made are do not remove seeds & membrane and use Herb & Garlic spreadable cream cheese. Also make sure the pepper goes completely around may need to use one slice of bacon but it's worth it. You will get great Raves and requests for more please.

    I make these all the time, but usually add some grated cheddar cheese and chives to the cream cheese. We grill instead of put under the broiler. The idea of just 3 ingredients and wrapping a filled jalepeno in bacon is WONDERFULL!!!!!
