Today I was going to write about my most favorite new shrimp recipe, but hold the press! I have always loved Jalapeño Poppers, but had never tried to make them. I recently came across a recipe that sounded so simple, so easy, and so delicious that I absolutely had to make them. I just finished making them. They are in my refrigerator right now and I am sharing this wonderful recipe with you. I cannot believe how yummy they are and all the ingredients are available in almost every tienda here in Sayulita!
*190-210 grams Philadelphia Cream cheese, softened at room temperature
*1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
*2 nice size fresh jalapeño peppers; remove seeds and thick membrane and chop very fine. You can adjust the amount of jalapeños you add to taste.
*8 slices of bacon; cooked until crisp. Save all the bacon fat to add to popper mixture.
*1/2 cup grated Swiss, Cheddar or Asiago Cheese or a combination
-Crumble cooled bacon
-Mash softened cream cheese and butter together
-Add reserved bacon fat, finely chopped jalapeños and grated cheese
-Blend all together
-Refrigerate until mixture is firm
-Form small balls and roll in crumbled bacon. I found that I had to help the bacon stick by patting bits onto balls. If you have a small cookie or ice cream scoop it makes the job very easy. Please take a look at the photo of the ingredients and you will see the ice cream scoop I used.
-Refrigerate until firm and then INDULGE!
I am certain that you will love these as much as I do! Take them to your next Sayulita party or as I have done, make them for a snack to enjoy at any time. Right now is a perfect time! I promise you that my next column will be of my newest, and I think, best shrimp recipe that I have ever made!
