1Slice the jalapeno peppers right down the center. Use a small spoon to scoop out seeds and clean as shown in the picture.

Note: Always use gloves when handling peppers, as you want to eliminate the possibility of the oils making contact with any part of your skin.

3Spoon a bit of cream cheese inside each pepper half. I've found that it is easier to fill the peppers when the cream cheese is on the hard side.

6Place the peppers on the bbq pit for about 30 to 45 minutes at a medium heat level. Then, place them on the top rack until you are ready to serve. They'll have your company coming back for seconds and possibly thirds!
