Easy Cheesy Jalapeno

Stuffed jalapenos
You can substitute serranos if you like a spicier pepper.  You can substitute goat cheese if you like a funkier cheese. Cut the chiles in half longways and scrape out the seeds and white parts.  Wash your hands.  Really well; the volatile oils of the chiles will give you burns on any part of your body that you touch if you aren’t very careful. Fill the half chiles with cream cheese.  Wrap each chile in a half piece of bacon.  Wash your hands again.  Put them in the oven on a baking sheet that has enough of an edge to catch any grease that might cook out of the bacon.  Bake at 325 until the bacon is done.  Be careful to watch the bottom of the bacon, which will tend to cook a lot faster due to contact with the metal pan.  Enjoy! (And wash you hands again)
