Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Begin by cutting bacon slices in half.
Place a jalapeno slice at the end of a piece of piece of bacon, top with a tater tot and roll it up. Secure it all together by skewering it completely through with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining tater tots.
Heat oil to about 350ºF in a fryer or deep pan. Fry wrapped tater tots in small batches until bacon is crisped, about 4-5 minutes. Do not overcrowd the pan or they will stick together.
Drain briefly on a paper towel. Place on an oven-proof dish and top with shredded cheese. Place in preheated oven for 5-6 minutes to slightly melt the cheddar cheese.
