I have made somewhat the same for a while. Be carefull when you cut the perppers--use plastic glovesI I boil the cut peppers in water that has a teasp.. of sugar ( so they stay nice and green. only for about 1-2 min. drain well.
We use the cream cheese but add some grated low fat Jalapeno - 12/31/07
I've made this several times. some changes i've made I use whipped cream cheese (it's easier use to stuff them with) and I also use 1/2 pc of turkey bacon to wrap around the pepper. Instead of cutting the bacon across for 2 short pieces I cut length wise up the middle to get a longer piece. - 5/13/08
Good. I think maybe my jalapenos were large or something because 1/3 piece of turkey bacon was not enough to wrap around a pepper. I ended up using 1/2 piece per pepper. I think I might try these on the grill next time (with toothpicks to hold the bacon on the peppers). - 9/1/07
