Ingredients:  
12 fresh jalapeņo peppers1
8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese2
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
12 slices bacon, cut in half
24 toothpicks

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (best for clean-up) or a silicone baking mat. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet. Set aside.
Cut the jalapeņo peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and center membrane. Set aside.
Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, and paprika together until combined. You could also do this by hand using a rubber spatula. Salt to taste - I add just a pinch. Spoon filling equally among all 24 jalapeņo halves.
Wrap each stuffed jalapeņo with a half slice of bacon and stick a toothpick through the center to assure the bacon stays in place. Place each on the baking rack and bake for 25-28 minutes or until the bacon is crisp to your liking. I like to turn the oven to broil for the last minute or two to get things extra crispy. Serve immediately. Cover leftovers and keep in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Make ahead tip: jalapeņo peppers can be stuffed and wrapped 1 day in advance. Refrigerate until ready to bake. You can also assemble and freeze up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bake as directed.

Personal Notes:
This was always a big hit with my family. We gather around to watch the super bowl ( just as an excuse to make and eat really awesome food) and eat these along with homemade salsa, and Sticky fingers. Both of those recipes can be found in this book.
