Cajun Kiss from J. Macklin's Grill

Chef Scott Hoffner from J. Macklin's Grill in Coppell makes a Cajun Kiss. It's a shrimp and cheese stuffed jalapeno pepper wrapped in bacon.

10 Jalapenos
10 Bacon strips
5 Shrimp
1/2 cup Jack Cheese, grated
10 Toothpicks
Salt and Pepper to taste

For Sauce
2 cups Sour Creme
1 Tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon garlic
1 Tablespoon horseradish
Salt and Pepper to taste


Cut "trap doors" in jalapenos. Remove the seeds.  Cut the 5 shrimp in half lengthwise after removing tails
Stuff each jalapeno with half a shrimp and ½ tsp jack cheese. After stuffing each jalapeno, wrap it with a bacon strip.

Stick a toothpick through each jalapeno to keep the bacon secure.   Spray a sheet with pan release and put jalapenos in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Mix remaining ingredients on a bowl for the sauce.   Use as a dip either in a bowl or on the plate smeared under the peppers.
