Makes 12 Poppers

6 whole organic Jalapenos
1/4 cup Daiya Plain Cream Cheese, Softened
2 Tablespoons Daiya Havarti (or cheddar) cheese
12 slices nitrate-free bacon

Cut jalapenos in half, length-wise. With a spoon, remove the seeds and white membrane (the source of the heat; leave a little if you like heat).

Cream cheese together until smooth. Spoon cheese mixture into each jalapeno half. Wrap jalapeno with bacon slices LOOSELY, leaving about 1 inch overlap, pin with toothpick. Remember, bacon shrinks as it cooks, so wrap loosely and leave extra. Cut off excess bacon and cook separately.
