"If you like bacon, shrimp, and like things spicy (in this case fresh jalapenos), this is for you. It's great as an appetizer or a heavy hors d'oeuvre. Can also be made on the grill!" — ieetcows

fresh jalapeno peppers
pimento-stuffed green olives, minced
chicken soup base (such as Better than Bouillon®)
1 (8 ounce) package
whipped cream cheese
cooked jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails on
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!
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!!
