OLD ALLIGATOR GRILL CAJUN KISSES
The Old Alligator Grill in Austin, Texas serves up this nice appetizer - jalapeno stuffed with cheese and shrimp – then wrapped in bacon and broiled.
Just “pucker up” and enjoy with sour cream for dipping. For extra “zing” add a few drops of Tabasco or hot sauce to the sour cream.
8 fresh jalapeno peppers
8 peeled, de-veined and cooked medium-size shrimp
Monterey jack or mozzarella cheese
8 strips bacon
Cut tops off of jalapeno peppers and scoop out seeds (discard seeds and tops). Stuff pepper first with small amount of cheese, then one shrimp and then fill remainder with more cheese. Wrap pepper with
strip of bacon (use toothpick to secure in place). Place each “kiss” on a broiler pan. Broil until bacon is crispy. (you can also deep fry, but this version is less greasy) Drain on paper towel and serve on plate with sour cream for dipping.
