My husband and his friends love to munch on these when they get together to watch basketball or football. Warning!!! These are NOT for the taster who's mild at heart!! You can also bake the peppers in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes; broil 1 to 2 minutes to crisp the bacon. Red or yellow bell peppers cam be substituted to lower the heat.

  • Place the cream cheese in a bowl, and mix in the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and salt until evenly blended.

  • Make one slit from end to end in the side of each jalapeno pepper, and scoop out the seeds. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the center of each pepper. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each pepper, and secure with a toothpick.

  • Place the peppers onto the preheated grill, and cook until peppers begin to soften, about 10 minutes.
