Savory Bacon-Shrimp Appetizer
Bailey Farms hot sauces are all natural and of the highest quality. Unlike other sauces that are mostly pepper-vinegar, they are a blend of chiles and fresh vegetables that are cooked down to perfection and deliver the perfect balance of heat and flavor.
2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese (room temperature)
4 strips crisp thick sliced bacon, chopped fine
six jumbo shrimp (16/20), cooked and chopped fine
1 Tbsp. Bailey Farms Jalapeno Hot Sauce
2 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp. chopped cilantro
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. cumin
lime juice to finish
To prepare the appetizer:
Mash the softened cream cheese into the bottom of a large glass bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Combine well and refrigerate the mixture for a couple of hours. Drizzle the mixture with a few drops of fresh lime juice and serve with toasted pita points and your favorite cold beverage. Excellent served as an appetizer at summer cookouts.
