Prep

Slice peppers in 1/2 and remove seeds.

Mix cheese, lime juice, cilantro, and chicken together. Fill each pepper. Wrap with 1/2 piece of bacon and put a toothpick through it.

Line baking pan with foil ( you’ll be happy later for doing this) place backing rack on baking pan and set peppers on rack  ( you need the rack to the bacon fat drips down) .   Bake in oven at 400 for 20-30 minutes   Then place under broiler on low for 5-10 mins to get crispy bacon and brown on top.

You’ll impress your friends–this makes a super tasty appetizer for your summer parties.  If you need to make ahead just bake, let sit at room temperature and just broil before you’re ready to serve.

    Wait a minute!! I was expecting peppers stuffed with cheese. Instead, I see these gorgeous bacon-wrapped jewels! Reminds of recipe for bacon wrapped dates stuffed with an almond and a dash of goat cheese. Might like the jalapenos even better!
