Instructions
  1. Begin by cutting jalapeños in half lengthwise. Using a sharp paring knife remove as many seeds and membrane as you would like. The seeds and membrane (white part that seeds stick to) is where the heat is, so the more you remove, the less spicy your jalapeños will be. Set jalapeños aside.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix softened cream cheese, cheddar, and garlic. Mix well until completely combined. Begin spooning the mixture into the halved jalapeños, using the back of the spoon to force the mixture into every little crevice.   
  3. Get some toothpicks handy on the counter or cutting board, and using either a full strip of bacon or a half strip, begin wrapping the stuffed jalapeño. (If you’re using center cut bacon, use a full strip. For other, longer types of bacon, a half strip will suffice.) Once the bacon is wrapped around the jalapeño, secure it with a toothpick pushed all the way through.   
  4. Have the grill preheated to a medium-high temperature. We use a grill basket for the ease of placing all of the jalapeños on the grill at one time, but you can certainly place them one at a time on the grilling surface. Our grill has the main grilling surface and an upper rack. For these jalapeños, we use the upper rack. If you don’t have this option, use the main grill rack, but bring the temperature down (if using gas) or use indirect heat (if using charcoal).  Close the cover on the grill and let them cook, checking after 10 minutes or so. Jalapeños will be done when the bacon is fully cooked, and the cheese appears melted.
  5. Serve warm!
