This is a recipe I got from a friend of mine many years ago. This was many years before the current grilled, bacon-wrapped, cream cheese filled jalapeno pepper recipe was popular. I like this recipe just as well and it is quicker and easier.

These are great served on a nice party buffet, game-day gathering, office luncheon or any other gathering.
