When I was cutting the jalapenos, I got so much 'essence of jalapeno' in my throat that I assumed the ones I had were super spicy (garden fresh from a coworker). So I boiled them for a minute or so to take some of the heat out. They ended up hardly spicy at all, so I'm not sure if I would do that again. Anyway, I used plain block cream cheese and a half a slice of bacon on each. Granted, the bacon was thick sliced, but I can't imagine using a whole slice for each jalapeno half, as the ones I made were plenty rich with just half a slice. For those who think a half slice of bacon doesn't wrap the pepper as well, you can stretch the bacon more than you think (especially when using the thinner sliced bacon). Overall, they were a little rich for me, but tasty too!
