  3. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp; remove the bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet.
  4. Melt 6 tablespoons butter in hot drippings in the skillet. Reduce heat. Add onion, poblano pepper, and garlic; saute 2 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add the shrimp; cook, stirring often, 1 to 2 minutes. Add salt and next 2 ingredients; toss to coat.
