How to Make Stuffed Seafood Jalapeno's


  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!
