I made these for a party. There were so many reviews we tried them two nights earlier using all the different methods. Here's what I found made them great. After slicing the peppers and cleaning them out, drop in boiling water for 4 - 6 minutes. This will pretty much take all the heat out though so if you want a punch, leave the membranes. We taste tested several cream cheese flavors. We picked 3 fav's, they were the cream cheese mixed with a powdered ranch mix, or mixed with a chipotle seasoning, or mixed with worstershire and garlic powder. (we tried 12 different flavors to get this perfect) Also, I found that 1/2 a strip of bacon was not enough - used the whole thing! And finally after you put the pepper together with cheese and bacon and toothpick - freeze it for 15 min. Then 10 minutes on the grill is perfect. Thanks so much for the yummy appetizer!!

We have a different variation on this recipe that came from the Marlboro Cook Like A Man Cookbook. You mix an 8oz pkg of cream cheese with 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning and 2 tsp Garlic Pwdr. They are awesome like that! Just make sure that you always tuck the end of the bacon under where you already wrapped it or it will unravel on the grill.

These are a 10! After making these many times, I can tell you that you really need to make them ahead of time and put them in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or the freezer for about 15 minutes. This will allow the cheese to firm up a bit and it won't all leak out of your peppers. I also have found that if you want them hot, leave all of the membrane inside and some seeds. If you want them barely warm(like me), get almost all of the membrane out from inside the pepper and leave no seeds. I cook them in the oven on 350 for about 45 minutes. ***A low calorie version is use fat free cream cheese and wrap each 1/2 pepper with only 1/2 slice of bacon. They are just as good and only about 60 calories each!!! YUM YUM!!!

This is a great recipe - and to take some of the bite out of the peppers, I soak them in cold water after they're cut and seeded. The longer you soak them, the milder they are.

I always use Embasa brand whole pickled jalapenos; and I use half cream cheese, half shredded cheddar or 3-cheese blend. After wrapping with bacon and securing with a pick, I shake the whole lot in a ziploc bag with Parmesan cheese (the green can kind) and then bake at 400* til the bacon is done to your liking. Even my stepmother, who doesn't LIKE hot stuff, makes SURE she gets her fair share of these!

VERY tasty, and SUPER easy... but 2 warnings: 1)WEAR GLOVES. As with all peppers contact with skin can leave you burning for hours. And since I was in a hurry I did just that - 4 hour later I still felt like my hands were in a fire. 2) BACON ON GRILL = FLAMES... The fat will start on fire... so be careful with your fire! Keep and eye it.

Try adding a packet of dry Ranch Dressing mix to the cream cheese before filling the peppers. We used to cook these every Thursday night for about 40-50 people and they were gone in a matter of minutes. Still get requests for these all the time.

This was pretty good. I followed the suggestions of some other reviewers and added cajun seasoning to my cream cheese, I used half slices of bacon and I baked them. The flavor is really good but I had problems with mine drowing in grease while they baked. I might try elevating them on a rack next time. ***UPDATE*** I elevated them the next time and they were really good but extremely hot. I used some older jalapenos and they were so hot they were inedible! Buy fresh jalapenos if you can and it will lessen the chance of getting the inedible ones.
