Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cut a slit in each jalapeno; remove the seeds and the stem.
  2. Mix minced olives, chicken soup base, and cream cheese together in a small bowl. Transfer the cream cheese mixture into a piping bag, or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe the mixture into the jalapeno pepper halves, filling each about 1/3 full. Press the cheese into the pepper with a spoon or finger.
  3. Insert a whole shrimp with the tail facing up into the stem-side of the filled jalapeno pepper. If the shrimp does not completely cover the cream cheese, cut a small piece from another shrimp to fill the tip of the pepper. Fill the any remaining space of the pepper by piping on more cream cheese. Wrap each stuffed pepper with a slice of bacon, securing with a toothpick through the center. Repeat until all the peppers are filled.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes.

Oh Yeah...if you want to impress...this is the app to bring when invited to a party. I used the biggest jalepenos and it made the job easier..but I also used large shrimp. I used maple flavoured bacon. I needed toothpicks to secure them. They were very tasty and everybody loved them....they didn't last verry long so make lots!!!Thank you for this recipe!!

These were pretty good only I changed it up a little bit. I don't like olives...AT ALL..so I stirred some pesto into my whipped cream cheese. I don't think the shrimp really added much extra. I bacon wrapped a few shrimp and baked them on a cookie sheet with the jalepenos--VERY GOOD!

They're fantastic! People come over requesting it. I don't use olives, but add a touch of water and salt to other cream cheese mix. It takes me about 45 minutes of baking until the bacon is crispy.
