Bacon & Jalapeno Wrapped Shrimp

Bacon makes the world go round and if you wrap it around shrimp and jalapeno then you have a very rounded world.

Shrimp is tasty “ I *heart* shrimp and it makes me very happy to add  jalapeno to this recipe. It's just one big happy well rounded wrap.

Ahh! These babies are good and will have you craving them time and time again.

Some call them Shrimp Diablos, but I call them what they are “ Bacon-Jalapeno Wrapped Shrimp.

These are divine!

Oh so delicious!

This is a recipe I have been making for quite some time and have started making it with my fourteen year old. I will get everything ready to go (i.e. cut and remove seeds of jalapenos, veggies, etc ¦) and set up an assembly line of sorts while Jace peels and deveins the shrimp (aka the icky part), passes to me to wrap and season.

We have a system.

Ok, enough with my bad jokes and rounded worlds let's make some bacon jalapeno shrimp and vegetable kabobs.

You ready for this?

Here we go!

Place assorted vegetables (zucchini, cherry tomatoes, squash, purple onion and mushroom) on skewers.

Spray grill with cooking spray and cook Bacon-Jalapeno Wrapped Shrimp until bacon is done and shrimp is pink. I recommend using thin bacon or it will take too long to cook and then all sorts of things go wrong. Char-coaled shrimp and grill fires just to name a few.

Cook Veggies until done or they begin to shrivel up.
