Instead of making ABT's 'upright' or the horizontal 'half peppers', here is an alternate method. It works good if you add a Lil' Smokey or some sausage , but it gives the bacon a seat. Here is the prep, a cut across each end, then side cuts.

I don't go super heavy on the rub in the cream cheese...

I do pound out my bacon, and the pieces on the right are 1/2 of a strip.

You can buy the 'thin' cut bacon, but pounding gives you more width and length, and it gets slightly sticky which is a good thing for ABT's or wrapping pepper rings.

Some serious nice Knife Skills, the way you cut them Jalapeños. You have more patients than me...JJ
 
Looks great! I love these things and can put away quite a few myself. My only complaint is when one of the jalapeños is a scorcher!
 
Hmm
I never made a true canoe style after seeing your technique.
I'll try that on my next batch
What do you do with the with the cut half pieces and guts?

I blend the cream cheese with shredded cheddar cheese, too
As others posted, my wife is not a fan.
After recent medical visit, I need to try this with side pork (sliced pork belly)
 
I'd like to find a, little bit, larger Jalapeño or other Chile. Less work and I would not eat so many in one sitting...JJ
 
One dozen have a very short half life in my house.
Once I get going, it's impossible to stop eating them.
I make mine exactly the same way!

I save the strips to chop into other things. They freeze well.
