12 whole Jalapenos cut in half, length wise

6 Bacon strips, sliced in 4 pieces

Grill:  On a hot grill, cook Jalapeno on its back for 30 minutes.  Turn and cook other side, be careful not to burn the cream cheese mixture.

Oven:  Place Jalapenos on a greased sheet pan and bake on 375 for 30 minutes.
