  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients except peppers; spoon into peppers.
  3. Place, filled-sides up, on baking sheet.
  4. Bake 10 min. or until cheese is melted.


  • Substitute: Substitute 3 large red, yellow or green bell peppers, each cut into 6 triangles, for the jalapeno pepper halves. Top with cheese mixture before baking as directed.
  • Special Extra: Add 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) to the cream cheese mixture before spooning into peppers.
  • Substitute: Prepare using KRAFT Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese or KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese.
  • How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers: When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.

I made these and they were a hit! My mother and aunt (both born and raised in Poland) have never eaten jalapeños and don't really do spicy (unlike me), so I did as another reviewer suggested and...

Delicious, quick, and easy! I will definitely make these again.

Just made these today and there were amazing! I used precooked bacon bits and that made prep even faster. Everyone loved them and I liked how easy they were to make. Next time I will wear glove...
