I found these on the internet and they are irresistable! Make them up ahead of time, keep them chilled until ready to pop them under the broiler.
Yields 12
Prep.Time: 20 minutes
6 fresh jalapeño chiles -- seeded and halved
12 slices bacon
1 pound Cheddar cheese
Pre-cook bacon 2-3 minutes or until just soft but not browned; drain on paper towels. Cut Cheddar cheese into 12 slices long enough to fit inside the jalapeno halves and insert cheese slices into the jalapeno halves. Wrap the jalapeno halves with the bacon slices, securing with a toothpick, if necessary. Place on a medium baking sheet. Cover and keep chilled until just before serving.
Preheat the broiler. Broil 5 to 10 minutes, or until the bacon is evenly browned and cheese is melted. Serve hot.
