1 lb. fresh jalapenos, halved and seeded

Filling:

  •   8 oz cream cheese

  •   1 cup shredded sharp cheddar

  •   1 cup shredded Jack cheese

  •   6 bacon strips, cooked crisp and crumbled

  •   1/4 teaspoon salt

  •   1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  •   1/2 cup bread crumbs

Blend together. Put about 2 tablespoons into each half and roll in bread crumbs. Place on well greased baking pan and bake in a 300 degree oven for 20 to 40 minutes. (Longer baking time yields milder flavor.)
