Let's Make It
Cook and stir bacon in medium skillet on medium heat until crisp. Meanwhile, cut thin slice off top of each onion; discard top. Use small spoon to scoop out centers of onions, leaving 1/2-inch-thick shells. Finely chop removed onions.
Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add 1/2 cup chopped onions to drippings in skillet. (Reserve any remaining chopped onions for another use.) Cook 5 min. or until onions are crisp-tender. Add chiles and garlic; cook 2 min. Stir in bacon.
Heat grill to medium heat. Mix cream cheese, shredded cheese and thyme in medium bowl; stir in bacon mixture. Spoon into onion shells. Place 1 on each of 6 large sheets heavy-duty foil; drizzle with dressing. Wrap foil tightly around onions, leaving room for heat circulation inside.
Grill 25 min. or until onions are tender.
