Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Baked Jalapeños

Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Baked Jalapeños

12 Jalapeño Peppers
1/4 Cup Chopped Cooked Bacon
1/4 Cup Minced Onion
1/2 Cup Shredded Jack Cheese, plus another 2 ounces of jack cheese cut into 2 1/2-inch long strips
1/4 Cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Dried KINGS Organic Fresh Oregano

Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees

1. You can either slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise or you can slice off the top one-third (lengthwise) of each jalapeño to make a boat shape out of each pepper. The halved jalapeños will go further (twice as many stuffed peppers), but you can put more filling into the boat-shaped peppers. Your choice. If you choose to make the boats, you can mince the tops and add them to the filling if you want some extra heat, or save them for another recipe. Scrape out all the seeds and ribs from each jalapeño with a spoon (a grapefruit spoon works great).
2.  Mix together all the filling ingredients except the jack cheese strips.
3.  Pack the filling into the peppers and nestle a strip of jack cheese onto the filling of each one. Arrange the peppers on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, and the peppers are cooked.
4. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
