  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Cut the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and remove stem and seeds.
  3. Cut each jalapeno piece into 3 long strips.

  5. Cut into the back of each shrimp, without cutting all the way through, so that the shrimp is almost butterflied open.
  6. Cover the jalapenos and shrimp with boiling water in a casserole dish or heat resistant bowl.
  7. Let sit for 60-90 seconds then rince with cold water and pat dry.
  8. Partially cook the bacon, to reduce grease.

  10. Put a piece of jalapeno in the cut in each shrimp's back.
  11. Place a stick of jack cheese on top of each jalapeno.
  12. Wrap the bacon around each shrimp and secure with a toothpick.
