Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 140
Yield: 2 dozen


2 dozen jalapeño peppers
1 (8-ounce) package shredded Mexican-blend cheese
1 (1-pound) package bacon, halved


Slice jalapeños lengthwise without cutting all the way through. Remove seeds and veins. Stuff with cheese; close back up. Wrap a half-slice of bacon around each jalapeño and secure with a toothpick. Grill on each side for 2 or 3 minutes, until bacon is cooked and cheese is melted.

Tip: Testing the heat on a charcoal grill or over a campfire is easy...if you can hold your hand 5 inches over the coals for 2 to 3 seconds, the coals are hot; 4 to 5 seconds means the coals are medium, and a full 6 seconds means the heat is low.
