Submitted by: SDA3504

Introduction

A VERY EASY-TO-MAKE YET IMPRESSIVE HEALTHY APPETIZER THAT IS SOOO YUMMY... IT IS BEST FRESH OFF THE BACKYARD GRILL, BUT I HAVE ALSO MADE A DELICIOUS VERSION ON MY GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL! A VERY EASY-TO-MAKE YET IMPRESSIVE HEALTHY APPETIZER THAT IS SOOO YUMMY... IT IS BEST FRESH OFF THE BACKYARD GRILL, BUT I HAVE ALSO MADE A DELICIOUS VERSION ON MY GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    JUMBO SHRIMP ALREADY COOKED
    REDUCED FAT CREAM CHEESE
    JALEPENOS, SPLIT IN HALF (RINSE OUT SEEDS TO MAKE LESS SPICY HOT)
    PACK OF BACON (UNCOOKED)--- TURKEY BACON MAKES FOR HEALTHIER TREAT, BUT MMM HOW PORK BACON REALLY BRINGS OUT THE FLAVOR.
    TOOTHPICKS

Tips

ENJOY!


Directions

--FILL EACH JALEPENO HALF WITH CREAM CHEESE, I LIKE TO FILL JUST TO THE TOP, IF YOU OVER FILL THE CREAM CHEESE MAY MELT AND BE MESSY.
--ADD A JUMBO SHRIMP(I PREFER WITH TAIL FOR BETTER FLAVOR) TO EACH HALF
--CUT SLICES OF BACON IN HALF AND WRAP AROUND THE JALEPENO AND SHRIMP, STICK A TOOTH PIC THROUGH THE CENTER TO HOLD IT ALL TOGETHER.
--PLACE ON GRILL UNTIL THE BACON IS NICE AND CRISPY, CURLED AND BROWN. USUALLY TAKES ABOUT 6 MINS ON EACH SIDE FOR ME. DO NOT OVERCOOK AS THE JALEPENO SHOULD STILL HAVE A CRUNCH.


Serving Size: MAKE AS MANY AS YOU LIKE BASED ON ONE JUMBO SHRIMP FOR EACH JALEPENO HALF

Number of Servings: 1
