This is a real crowd pleaser! We never have any left! We cook these on the grill, but you can also dip them in tempura batter and deep fry them.

This recipe was a lot more work than it originally seemed. The thick cut bacon burned before the cheese melted and the shrimp cooked throughly.

These are a bit time consuming, but they're well worth the effort! My friends just love these. I've made them along with grilled steak and chicken, which I'll have leftovers of. But, very rarely are there any of these great, rich, spicy shrimp! Very good!

Had no bacon on hand so skipped that part along with the seasoning stuff. I used a smoked bacon cheddar cheese ball and cut thin slices to go with the thin slices of jalapeno. Along with some mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, sweet yellow onion and bell pepper strips, these were the most amazing kabobs ever. I mixed up some Chablis with virgin olive oil, lemon juice and one of those italian spice grinders to baste the kabobs with. You would never believe how quickly these disappeared!
