  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper
  • 2 ounces Monterey jack cheese
  • 12 slices bacon, cut into thirds
  • 6 bamboo skewers

Instructions

  2. Marinate in dressing for 10 minutes; reserve marinade for basting on the grill.
  3. Slice pepper in half lengthwise; remove seeds and slice into very thin "matchsticks"; set aside.
  4. Slice cheese into "matchsticks"; set aside.
  5. Place 1 strip of pepper and 1 strip of cheese in the center of each shrimp. Close shrimp, wrap with 1/2 slice bacon, and thread onto skewers (about six shrimp per skewer).
