Holiday Party Recipe-Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

I have been making these babies for years now...obviously they are catered to people who enjoy a little spice in their life...but are usually a huge hit with everyone (With a large glass of eggnog!). They are also a great appetizer to make in advance and freeze.
 Wash about 20 fresh Jalapenos...the bigger the better.
 Slice the jalapeno in half...being careful to wear a pair of gloves...you do NOT want to touch your face after handling these.
Using a small spoon, scrap out the seeds and membranes from the jalapeno halves.
Spoon some softened cream cheese into the jalapeno halves. This was a huge one.
Next, wrap 1 slice of bacon around each jalapeno. If your jalapenos are on the small side then only use half a slice of bacon.
At this point I put all the prepped jalapenos in a sealed container and into my deep freezer for the week. Come party day morning I removed them from the freezer to defrost. 30 Minutes before guests arrive arrange the jalapenos on a broiler pan (the one with the slots in it for the bacon drippings to drip down into). Bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until bacon is super crispy.
Serve to your hungry guests!
