  • 12 jalapeño peppers
  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup Gossner Monterey Jack or Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375°.

Slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs making a boat shape out of each pepper. Mix together all the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Pack the filling into the peppers. 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. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
