Expert Tips

Be sure to handle jalapeños carefully! The oils that get on your hands can cause some burning, especially if you rub your eyes. If possible, use food-safe plastic gloves when working with the chiles—you can find them at the pharmacy.

Stir a couple slices of cooked and crumbled bacon into the cream cheese mixture before stuffing the jalapeños.
