“An easy appetizer that will surely impress. You can also feel free to broil these, rather than use a grill.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the filling, in a small bowl, combine cream cheese, chives, breadcrumbs, and garlic. Stir in chiles; cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. Coat a grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium (300-350 degrees F). Place bacon on a microwaveable plate lined with paper towels. (For multiple layers of bacon, place paper towels between layers.) Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes or just until lightly browned but still pliable. (Bacon will be undercooked.) Set aside.
  3. Cut through the back of each shrimp to butterfly, being careful not to cut all the way through. Open shrimp like a book, and flatten slightly. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the filling evenly onto each shrimp. Close shrimp. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each shrimp to enclose filling.
  4. Place shrimp on grill, filling side up. Grill, covered, 4-7 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Transfer to a platter and serve.
