I love this recipe and have made these for years. However, I always had trouble with the fumes when I cut and de-seeded the jalapenos. The fumes would be so bad that I felt like I was having an asthma attack. I tried wearing a face mask and de-seeding them under running water - still had problems. Today, in a flash of inspiration, I cut and cleaned them entirely submerged under water. I put the wooden cutting board on the bottom of my sink and filled the sink with water. I cut off the ends, cut them in half, and removed the seeds completely under water, then laid them on a paper towel to dry before adding cream cheese and bacon. Voila! Absolutely NO fumes, no burning or choking or gasping. Also, I bought some specialty cream cheese that has blue cheese mixed in, and that was really a nice variation on the plain cream cheese. I do these in the oven when the weather is bad, and they turn out just as good. When I serve these, my guests rave!
