  • 1/3 cup Boursin cheese with garlic and herbs (from 5.2 oz container)

Step 1:  Heat oven to 375°F.  Carefully remove stems from chiles; cut each in half lengthwise and again horizontally to make 4 pieces.  Remove and discard seeds.  Spoon about 1 teaspoon of cheese into each chile quarter.  Wrap half slice of bacon around each.

Step 3:  Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet.  Serve with salsa.
