Tastes great!!! had a little problem on the grill though. Maybe try cooking on the George Foreman Grill. The shrimp cooked faster than the bacon too so maybe try microwaving the bacon a little first before wrapping. otherwise very delicious Read More

This was ok...I guess I'm more of a health nut and the bacon really didn't add as much as I thought it would. Just added more fat and calories. I tried making it with pre-cooked bacon and it really was just ok. Sorry. Read More

I have made this dish many times and think it is wonderful. I leave out the green chilies for the ones for my children. Everyone in my family loves it. Read More

I made this recipe for the first time last night. It was great! My only recommendation is to either precook the bacon or be sure to cook it on a grill- otherwise the bacon doesn't come out crisp. Read More
