Don’t be a hero. Wear the gloves.
Halve all those spicy babies.
Whip up the cream cheese mixture and spread it onto the halved jalapenos. Pop the peppers in the freezer for 1-2 hours. This step is important! If you were to skip it and move directly onto the grilling phase, you would risk all that luscious cheese melting out of the peppers and onto the grill.
By this time, your party guests are probably salivating from the smell of grilled bacon, so get those poppers on a plate! They are certain to be a game day hit!
