Abuelo Mexican Restaurant's Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Shrimp - For Appetizer, Main Course or Fajitas

"Bacon-wrapped succulent shrimp stuffed with fresh jalapeno slivers and blended cheeses, these shrimp are grilled on skewers. They can be prepared as Fajitas, adding shredded Cheddar and Jack cheese, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream in fresh tortillas, but I have also made them to have with Mexican rice and Mexi-corn or Mexican Street Corn, and have also made them as appetizers. No matter how I have served them, they are amazing!"
