Who doesn't love bacon wrapped shrimp? These two foods are a match made in heaven... especially when you combine them with jalapeños for a delicious party food!

These bacon wrapped shrimp jalapeño poppers are the ultimate quick and easy appetizer or party food. One bite and you get the delicious combination of the heat of the chile, crispiness of the bacon and cool balance of the cream cheese....so good!

I also added sautéed shrimp to the mix, which kicked my poppers up to a whole new level. Simply combine the shrimp with the cream cheese for a tasty filling for your popper. Wrap it all up in bacon (because just about anything wrapped in bacon tastes good) and you've got an easy appetizer full of flavor and texture.
