      These were great!! I now make these whenever I entertain, and they are always a huge hit. I like to use the Salsa Jack cheese or the Hot Pepper Jack cheese to give them a little more spice. Ranch dip is a must.

      I made 2 dozen of these last night to serve with cocktails. Thank goodness I made them up earlier in the day. It's not easy to get these things stuffed. I used 16-20 per pound size shrimp. I needed the whole piece of bacon to keep the pepper slice and cheese stick in the shrimp. But.. don't let the assembly deter you from making this recipe. It's delicious... and I wouldn't make the dip an option. The dip really adds to the wonderful flavor of the shrimp. Next time I'll take the advice of Mitzi Galus and add some chopped jalapeño peppers to the dip, because even though the shrimp have the pepper strip in them they aren't really that spicy. This recipe is certainly a 'keeper' and makes a nice presentation. Thanks for the recipe.

      I made these for a dinner party at a friends house and they were a huge hit. Not one was left! I added some finely chopped jalepenos to the ranch dressing along with the cilantro, and it was nice and spicy. I would definitely make this one again.
