Ingredients
  • Nonstick spray
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 12 large jalapenos, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 12 slices center-cut bacon, halved lengthwise
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese, Cheddar, cilantro, salt, pepper and green onions.

  • Fill each jalapeno half with a heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture. Wrap the bacon tightly around the jalapenos, overlapping slightly.
