Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

I am always trying to come up with some appetizer recipes. I love appetizers! Sometimes I rather have a few different appetizers for a meal rather than having just one main dish. So here's my latest! I hope to have a picture for you soon. I didn't get to take a picture of this dish the last time I made it because I wasn't fast enough for my family. They just jumped right in and before I knew it there weren't any left to take pictures of. LOL!

You will need:
1 lb. of Jalapeno peppers, seeded and halved lengthwise
1 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese, softened
1 pkg. of bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped
1/4 cup of chives, chopped
2 Tbs. of fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup of parmesan cheese, grated
2 Tbs. of extra virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, bacon, parsley and chives. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture onto each pepper half. Arrange the pepper halves on a baking sheet. Sprinkle each half with a little of the grated parmesan cheese. Drizzle the olive oil over the tops of the peppers. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
