Fumbling Toward Culinary Talent: Bacon-Wrapped, Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

This recipe isn't a first run. I did a similar recipe about a week ago, and it was okay. So today I modified it a little bit: used turkey bacon and made sure I used toothpicks. 

5 jalapenos
3-4 wedges of Laughing Cow creamy Swiss light cheese
Slices of turkey bacon

Start with the peppers. Chop off the tops of them and use a paring knife to hollow out the membrane and seeds of the peppers. 

Take the spreadable cheese and cram it inside the peppers. Fill them to the brim.

Then it's wrappin' time. I suggest cutting some of the slabs of bacon into halves. Take the half pieces and wrap them atop the pepper so that piece of bacon acts as a cap to where the stem once was on the pepper. Skewer the pepper to hold the bacon there and then wrap one of two pieces of bacon around the rest of the pepper (depending on size of the pepper) and skewer it again. 

Put them on the grill and rotate liberally.
