Podcast Recommendation: Story Corps: After Son’s Death, Marine’s Parents Grow Close To His Platoon: This one is short – at just 3 minutes and 14 seconds – but it’s a very moving conversation between the mother of Lance Corporal Brian Parrello, who was killed by an IED in Iraq in 2005, and Sergeant Kevin Powell, a member of Parrello’s unit, who has formed a close bond with Parrello’s family after his death.

Servings: 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 jalapeños, cut in half with inside scrapped clean
  • 4 thinly cut strips of steak (any cut and each strip should be slightly smaller than the length and width of a jalapeño half)
  • 2 slices thin cut bacon, cut in half
  • 1.5 – 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1/8 cup vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. cut jalapenos lengthwise and clean out seeds.
