Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees; line jelly-roll pan with aluminum foil, or parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, combine tamales, and cheese, discarding corn husk wrappers. Mash, and scoop mixture evenly into halved jalapenos. Slice bacon strips into halves, wrapping around each halved jalapeño, and secure with wooden toothpick. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, adding additional time as needed for desired bacon crispness. Serves 6, appetizer portion of 2 per person.
