  1. 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  2. 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  3. 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  4. 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  5. 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  6. 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  7. 12 medium jalapeno peppers, stems removed, halved lengthwise and seeded
  8. 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  9. 2 tablespoons ketchup
  10. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  1. In a large bowl, combine the cheeses, bacon and seasonings. Spoon about 1 tablespoonful into each pepper half. Dip tops of stuffed peppers into bread crumbs.
  2. Place a small amount of ketchup at the end of each popper; top with a sliced almond to resemble a fingernail. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 dozen.
  1. Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
