Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeños Stuffed with Cheese

Fresh jalapeño peppers
Bacon slices, cut into thirds
Cream cheese, softened to room temperature

Wash and dry the jalapeños. Cut off stem ends, split in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scrape out the seeds and membranes. 

Stuff each half with softened cream cheese. A spoon is ideal to scoop, stuff, and smooth the cheese. 

Wrap each stuffed half pepper with a bacon piece. Secure with toothpicks, if desired. 

Place stuffed and wrapped peppers on a rack over a pan. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes.
