Serves 24 (1 each).

All you need:

12 whole jalapenos
1 (8 oz) container Hy-Vee cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. Hy-Vee traditional crumbled feta cheese
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp Hy-Vee garlic powder
1/4 tsp Hy-Vee black pepper
24 slices Hy-Vee center cut bacon*

All you do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise. Wearing gloves to protect hands from burning, with a spoon remove seeds and white membrane from jalapenos.
In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, feta cheese, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. Smear cream cheese mixture into each jalapeno half until jalapeno is full of cream cheese mixture. Wrap each stuffed jalapeno half with a slice of bacon.
Place jalapeno halves on cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until bacon is brown.
*For a healthier version, swap out Hy-Vee center cut bacon for Hy-Vee turkey bacon.
