[picture to come.]

The Goods
2 (16 ounce) packages Cheddar cheese, shredded
20 jalapeño peppers, seeded and halved
2 packages SCD bacon

The Gettin’
1. Preheat the broiler. Stuff halved peppers generously with cheese.  Slice the bacon in half.
2.Wrap the stuffed jalapeño halves with the bacon slices.  Wrap a medium baking sheet in foil and place the peppers on the sheet.
3. Broil 5 to 10 minutes, or until the bacon is done to your satisfaction.

The Take
This one is GREAT for parties, your own or to take!  Easy and delicious!  Always a hit and surprisingly not too hot.  Taking out the seeds makes them very eatable even for those not inclined for the heat.  Jordan and I love to enjoy these even as leftovers after the event.
