Ingredients

30 medium
jalapeno peppers, cleaned
2 pkg
cream cheese, soft
2 can(s)
small shrimp, drained
2 can(s)
canned crabmeat, flaked and drained
3 tsp
garlic, pressed
2 lb
bacon
1/2 pkg
dry ranch dressing
1/2 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tsp
old bay seasoning
1 box
toothpicks

Directions Step-By-Step

1
I always clean the Jalapeno's the night before. Makes it so much easier. Wear food prep gloves and glasses. Jalapeno juice in a cut or your eyes is painful. I put the jalapeno's in ice water over night. It takes some of the bite out of it.
2
Drain the crab and shrimp. In a bowl mix the soft cream cheese,crab and shrimp, dry ranch dressing and Old Bay Seafood Seasoning and cheese. Mix well. Refrigerate over night.Flavor marries really nicely.
3
The next morning drain the Jalapenos well before you stuff them.
4
Take the stuffing out and let it get soft. Make sure you use a pastry bag for stuffing the Jalapeno's. Much easier than trying to spoon it in. The larger the tip the better.
5
Squeeze the stuffing into the Jalapeno,then wrap the bacon around the Jalapeno. Then put the toothpick in to hold bacon in place.Place in Jalapeno rack.
6
Cook on Grill for 20 minutes or bacon is crisp!
