  • Stir jalapeno pieces into cream cheese and set aside.
  • Cut a slit into the back of each shrimp.
  • Gently "stuff" the cream cheese mixture into the shrimp.
  • Wrap one slice of bacon completely around the shrimp several times and secure with toothpicks.
  • Place shrimp on a foil lined grilling basket or tray.

  • Place on grill and close the lid, checking every 2 minutes, turning at least one time until bacon is browned - depending on the temperature of the grill this is anywhere from 7-12 minutes.
