3/4 Cup Monterey Jack Cheese

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

2 Tbsp Parsley, chopped

1/4 Cup Breadcrumbs

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Combine cream cheese, tequila, Monterey jack cheese, salt, pepper, and parsley and breadcrumbs in a bowl and gently mix until combined. Spoon the mixture into the jalapeño halves.
