  1. Start with a dozen jalapeño and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove or leave in the seeds depending on much heat you like. Mix the cheeses, shallots and garlic together in a small bowl. Stuff the cheese mixture into the pepper.
  2. Cut a package of bacon in half then wrap the jalapeño halves in the bacon and secure with toothpicks. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Put the peppers on a cookie sheet and place in the oven for 25 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and the cheese is melted.
