A good combination of flavors, and the degree of spiciness, that depends on you.
I've been cooking Vietnamese food lately, and one ingredient commonly called for is pickled shallots, so of course, I had to make some.

You can wrap just about anything in bacon, and it will taste good. When you wrap bacon around a dove breast with a slice of jalapeño and grill it, that, takes it off the chart.
