Slice jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membrane. Fill cavity with softened neufchatel cheese. Cut slices of bacon in half and wrap around each cheese-filled pepper, securing with a toothpick. Place peppers on a baking sheet and bake at 400°F for 25 minutes or until bacon is cooked through and starting to crisp up. Serve hot.
While not quite as exceptional as breaded versions, in my opinion, these are still excellent as a low carb appetizer. Besides, if you have trouble with the other type from its breading falling off, you will like these a LOT! Great served with melted red jalapeno jelly to dip these in. Of course, that's not low carb.
