makes 40 Poppers

Ingredients

20 large jalapeños (about 1 lb.), halved and seeded
20 strips bacon (about 1 lb.), cut in half
1 lb. cream cheese, softened
23 cup grated Parmesan
2 tbsp. chopped chives
14 tsp. cayenne
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

Arrange an oven rack 4″ from broiler and heat broiler to high. Place jalapeño halves cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet, and broil just until softened, 3-5 minutes; set aside. Place bacon on another baking sheet; broil until fat is rendered and bacon is halfway cooked; set aside.
Turn oven to 425°. Mix cheeses, chives, cayenne, salt and pepper in a bowl. Spoon about 1 tbsp. filling in each jalapeno half. Wrap each with a strip of bacon and secure with toothpicks. Return to baking sheet and bake until bacon is crisp and filling is melted, 10-12 minutes.
