A fairly easy recipe, though it can take a while. But be careful, they are addicting!

Step 1: Prepare Jalipeños

You will need the same number of peppers as slices of bacon. 20 peppers is a good number.
Cut the bacon strips in half.
Cut off the stems then cut the jalipenos in half lengthwise and remove all the seeds. This is very important unless you like them volcano hot.

Step 2: Fill with cream cheese

I use a cake decorating or pastry bag to get the cheese in there, but you can spoon it in. Just get it in.

Step 3: Wrap with bacon

Wrap half a piece of bacon around it and insert a toothpick to hold it together.

Step 4: Cook them

We cook them on our outdoor grill on a baking sheet with foil. If you try and put them directly on the grill you will get fire and they will be ruined. (Learned that one the hard way.) You can also cook them in the oven at about 300 degrees F. The slower the better.

I'm glad you didn't add a picture of the final cooked product because I might have eaten my monitor.

These look tasty and they are low carb. and gluten free!

I was just wondering why this instructable only has 1600 views after 20 months. I think it might be your spelling of "Jalapeño" that's throwing people's searches off.

I love this recipe. I have made these for years without the cream cheese and using whole peppers hollowed with a paring knife. can't wait to try it this way. Just as an FYI, its not the seeds that make Jalapenos and other peppers hot. The capsaicin develops in the white veins and membrane inside the peppers. The seeds are hot because they grow in this membrane.
