Would I be able to safely freeze jalapenos that had been filled with cream cheese and baked, then wrapped with a strip of bacon, for later consumption?

Oops, I had wrapped the strip of bacon around the half-shell jalapeno, before I had baked it.  I neglected to mention that.

Since you do not have flash freezing equipment, I would say no. Cream cheese wil throw water as will pepper and be soft and soggy

Hm, guess I just don't know what I'm doing, I freeze stuffed bell and chile peppers fairly regularly without, at least so far,,much of a problem. I will concede that I have not used cream cheese in the stuffing so far, will have to try that.

Now, TBS, I blanch the peppers first (chilled in ice water) and the stuffing is completely cooked or does not need cooking. Both peppers and stuffing are cool/cold when stuffed and ai chill in refer for at least 2-4 hours before going into the freezer
