Makes 24

12 jalapeños
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. leftover stuffing
1 lb. sliced bacon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Slice each jalapeño in half and remove
the seeds.

Spread cream cheese on each jalapeño, then top each with stuffing.

TIP: Add a little turkey broth to leftover stuffing when reheating
to keep it moist.

Wrap each jalapeño in a slice of bacon.
(For the smaller jalapeños, slice a strip
of bacon in half and wrap around it.)

Place in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.
