Stuffed Jalapenos

4 large jalapenos (or as many as you need, allow 1 jalapeno / person)
8 slices bacon
4 oz. (half block) cream cheese

Begin by laying out strips of bacon on a plate. Microwave until they are about 1/2 cooked, 1-2 minutes depending on your microwave settings. (watch them if you are unsure). They should still be pretty pliable and easy to wrap around a jalapeno.
While microwaving the bacon in batches, prepare the jalapenos. Remove the stems and slice in half. Remove all of the seeds and membrane.
Spoon in the cream cheese, about a tablespoon full depending on the size of the peppers.
Wrap each with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Grill for 5-10 minutes on a medium-high heat, until the peppers are soft and the cheese is set.
