My husband has made this many times. We call them poppers. As the recipe says, "seeded". ALWAYS remove the seeds from the jalapenos unless you want them extra hot! My husband has to make them because I have an extremely painful reaction on my hands (they turn bright red and burning hot; takes hours for it to go away) when handling raw jalapenos. We started using neufchatel cream cheese because not only does it have 1/3 less fat, it also doesn't melt as badly as regular cream cheese. We've never noticed ANY difference in how they taste. We also prefer them baked on a greased cookie sheet in the oven at 400-425 degrees instead of grilling them as the grill flavor tends to overpower the delicate cheese flavor. Be sure and use thin bacon and wrap it generously (of course it shrinks). They usually take about 15-20 minutes to get the bacon crispy. Just watch them carefully.
