  1. Whisk together the oil, lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Toss the shrimp in the marinade, then refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Preheat an indoor electric grill for medium-high heat.
  3. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and shake off excess. Wrap each shrimp with a strip of chili pepper, then half a bacon slice. Secure with a toothpick. Repeat with remaining shrimp. Cook on preheated grill until the bacon is crisp, and the shrimp is hot, 6 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle the shrimp with diced avocado, and garnish with lime wedges to serve.

We have made these twice. Easy to make and everyone loved them. I used the George Foreman grill and it only took a few minutes. We also made a lime butter to go with the shrimp because I over...

absolutely popping with flavor! It probably would have been perfect without the things I added, as the bacon gives such a great flavor against the lime juice. I added a few things only because I...

I made these for a work function and oddly was unable to find whole green chili peppers so I substituted jalapenos (mild) and this was a huge success. We do this once a month at work and my co-...

This was very tasty, but the marinade for the shrimp didn't seem to add all that much to either me or my husband. Lime wedges were a must as the lime flavor was wonderful with the shrimp and ba...

My brother in-law made this for Thanksgiving, and it was eaten up faster than anything!! I had him give me the recipe the very same day!! I can't wait to make them! Even the people who don't pre...

Time consuming, but a GIANT hit at my luau party I make half the batch with Chilies & the rest without to suit multipul pallets. It is one item everyone is making sure I will be preparing again ...
