The following is the recipe for the jalapeno poppers that were featured during the segment.

JALAPENO POPPERS

Ingredients:

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup crispy bacon, chopped up
1/4 cup Meijer shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Meijer wheat crackers, crushed
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Preheat grill to 400 F. Set cream cheese out in order that it can soften. Cook chopped bacon in fry pan until crispy. Drain on a paper towel.

Once cream cheese is soft, mix in the cheddar cheese, bacon, crackers and salt and pepper.

Remove the top and ALL of the stems and seeds inside the pepper.

Use a piping bag to fill peppers with the cream cheese mixture.

Place peppers in a jalapeno grill rack. Set rack on grill and cook for 20 minutes or until the pepper is soft.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
