Because really, what DOESN'T taste better with bacon? (Other than lemon meringue pie...)
1/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
6 fresh whole jalapeño peppers
6 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese with cheese wedges and mix until smooth. Set aside.
Halve the peppers lengthwise, and remove seeds, stems, etc. Wash halves and dry them very well. Evenly spoon and spread cheese mixture into the pepper halves. Set aside.
Cut bacon slices in half widthwise, yielding 12 pieces. Wrap a piece of bacon around each pepper half, and secure with a toothpick if needed.
Evenly place pepper halves on the baking sheet. Bake in the oven until the bacon is just crispy, about 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
