How to Make Stuffed Seafood Jalapeno's


  • 1I 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.
  • 2Drain 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.
  • 3The next morning drain the Jalapenos well before you stuff them.
  • 4Take 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.
  • 5Squeeze 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.
  • 6Cook on Grill for 20 minutes or bacon is crisp!
