Made these last night and they were a big hit. Used fresh peppers and removed seeds/membranes. Added some canned diced green chilies and diced ham to the cream cheese, and per one reviewer's suggestion, used a pair of skewers to double-pierce each jalapeno for grilling. I think the diced ham was not noticeable therefore unnecessary, but the green chilies addition was nice, although I think the filling could still use a little more flavoring. The peppers were fairly large so I used full slice of thick bacon per jalapeno and the double skewering idea worked great. The charcoal fire was real hot so grilled on the fringe, which prevented flare-ups, and experienced minimal cheese oozing but needed to keep an eye on them to prevent bacon burn. We loved the fresh jalapeno flavor with a nice little spice bite. While the prep work was a little much, it was worth it if you have the time and want to impress. I expect these will become a regular addition to dinner parties.
