1.Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet lightly with cooking spray and set aside.
2.Prepare the jalapeño peppers but cutting off the stems and slicing them in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out and discard the seeds.
3.To prepare the filling, mash together the cream cheese, avocado, lime juice, cumin, and salt until well combined (but leaving the avocado a bit chunky). Spoon the filling into the prepared jalapeño halves.
4.Cut the slices of bacon in half and tightly wrap one half-slice of bacon around each of the stuffed jalapeño halves. Arrange the bacon wrapped jalapeños on the baking sheet. Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, until the bacon is cooked and crisp and the filling is bubbly. Transfer the cooked poppers to a plate lined with paper towels before placing them on a serving dish to remove any excess grease. Serve immediately.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
