Summer is here! It’s time to make a splash, not only in your pool but in the kitchen, too. Here in Arizona, the best way to enjoy the summer is relaxing poolside after a refreshing swim and enjoying a favorite snack. That’s why my shrimp-stuffed, bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers are the perfect treat! Shrimp (which is one of my favorite ingredients) is a great source of protein and super versatile. So when mixed with just a little cream cheese, herbs, and spices, stuffed in jalapeños, and wrapped in bacon, you can satisfy your craving for something full of flavor, slightly spicy, creamy, and crunchy.
Now, this is definitely not one of my healthier recipes, but, hey, it’s summer, and these poppers are baked, not deep-fried! To wash it down, my favorite go-to-beverage is refreshing basil lemonade, which not only hydrates, but is also rich in antioxidants. So make a splash, and mix it up this summer.
