Bacon Stuffed Jalapenos

This is Mr. CT's favourite stuffed jalapeno recipe and he believes it is the only way bacon jalapenos should ever be made. Seriously. Even though I don't eat meat or a lot of cheese, I do make an exception for this guys.  We do not eat them often, only during special times because they are that good, and because they are a little fatty. The secret is (Mr. CT said I could revel this) is mixing bacon, and some grease, into the cream cheese. His problem with other recipes of these is that not every bite has bacon, so he created these guys. Hope you give them a try!
