    2. Rinse the jalapeno, pat dry and then using the back of a spoon press the softened cream cheese into the hollowed out part of the jalapenos.

    3. take a slice of bacon and wrap it around the jalapenos and place them on to the pan. When all are wrapped place into the oven and cook until bacon is done
