  3. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, salsa verde, half the cheddar cheese, and half the chopped jalapeño. Set aside.
  4. Once the grill is hot, grill the pork chops for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until just cooked through.
  5. Divide the cheese mixture between the chops and spoon it on top.
  6. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese, chopped jalapeños, and chopped bacon (if desired). Serve.
