Stuffed Jalapenos

9 jalapenos
12 ounces cream cheese
2/3 to 3/4 lb bacon
garlic powder
soft bread crumbs

Slice jalapenos in half, and remove core and seeds.  Cook bacon most of the way, then diced into small pieces (I discard the really fatty parts).  Mix softened cream cheese with bacon, then add a dash of cumin and a few dashes of garlic powder.  Stuff jalapenos with the cream cheese mixture. Spread bread crumbs out on a plate, and press the cream cheese side of each jalapeno into the bread crumbs, then brush off the excess.  Place jalapenos cream cheese side up in a glass pan or on a metal baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.  Then move rack up and broil for 1-3 minutes, watching to make sure the bread crumbs crisp and lightly brown, but don't burn. Serve warm.
