Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Thingies

Oh yeah. They taste as good as they look.
And they are so easy to make.
I made these for a little party of about 13 teenagers. Let's just say that they didn't last more than a few minutes. But I was afraid I might have killed one of them; they were a little spicy. Especially the ones where there might have been a few seeds still hiding in them!Oops!!
Here is the easy version of the recipe. But again, if you want the beautiful pics and Pioneer Woman humor instead of mine, then click here. But if you're still with me, here is my version!

Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies

20 jalapenos
2 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (16 oz.) package of bacon

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Cut the jalapenos in half, lengthwise. Scrape out the seeds, CAREFULLY!! Use a spoon, but even then, using gloves wouldn't hurt. I can't figure out how to have my hands NOT burning after this process.
3. Cut the bacon slices into thirds, you can do this without even separating the hunk of bacon. Hunk. That's a cooking term.
4. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese, wrap with a third piece of bacon, and stick a toothpick through it.
5. Put them on a pan, preferably a pan with a rack underneath it so that the bacon grease can drip down below. I used a broiler pan and it worked just fine!
6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. If the bacon doesn't appear done, then put the oven on broil and bake a few more minutes. Enjoy!!

Disclaimer: These are hot!! If you want even more heat, then leave the seeds in them. But don't say I didn't warn ya!!

Blessed little jalapenos.
The process. Very easy!! Especially when you are cooking alone in a clean kitchen, someone is watching your kids, and you are accompanied by country music. Just sayin'.
Right before we popped them in the oven.
Such easy prep!! I even have another order to make these, and to triple the recipe!! You won't be able to resist them!!
They will be gone fast!!
