Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

I made Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers way back at the Super Bowl. I can't believe it's taken me this long to share. 

If your a seafood lover like we are Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeño Poppers are for you! They are on the top of my list for all time favorite Jalapeño Poppers. I love all the cheesy goodness loaded with shrimp and crunchy panko topping. 

Whenever Colt and I go out for Mexican Food we order fried jalapeños. Our favorite restaurant coats the outside in chili lime seasoning, which happens to be my favorite part. So I decided to sprinkle the outside of the jalapeños with chili lime seasoning to really kick up the flavor of these Shrimp Stuffed Jalapeños.

I didn't wear gloves, but they are probably a good idea to prevent the dreaded I touched a jalapeño, and then accidentally touched my face scenario. If you've never experienced it I don't suggest trying it. Cut 5-6 large Jalapeños in half, and use a spoon to remove seeds. Brush skin of jalapeños with olive oil, and sprinkle with Chili Lime Seasoning.


Cream together 4 ounces Cream Cheese, 1  cup Shredded Jack Cheese, 1/2 teaspoon Chili Lime Seasoning,  and 1/4 teaspoon Salt, until well combined. Fold in 1/2 pound Bay Shrimp (small salad shrimp) and divide stuffing equally between jalapeños. 


In a small bowl mix together 1/4 cup Panko Bread Crumbs, and 1 tablespoon Melted Butter, until well combined.

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Shredded Jack Cheese over the top of stuffed jalapeños. Then sprinkle the panko bread crumb mixture over the top.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until panko is golden brown.

These are a must for your next party, or just because!

  1. Time to pick up some chili lime seasoning! These poppers sound amazing!!

  2. This made me laugh--I never wear gloves and I can't tell you how many times I've touched my EYES after working with jalapeños. You'd think I'd learn. My dad is a huge shrimp lover so I'm going to have to make these for him sometime. They look delish!

  3. My mouth is on fire, but it's a happy fire! Delicious!

  4. LOVE jalapeno poppers and the addition of shrimp!

  5. Looking forward to making these shrimp poppers. what company makes the chili lime seasoning? Wasn't in my local Publix.

    1. I bought mine from Trader Joes, but most major grocery stores should carry it in the Mexican Food section. The most common name brand one is called Tajin Seasoning. If you google it, it might help get an idea of what the bottle looks like.

  6. Can I make these popper the day before?

    1. You could assemble them but I would wait to add the panko topping until right before baking to prevent the topping from becoming soggy. Thanks, Serena

  7. I didn't have chili lime seasonings so I used fresh squeezed lemon. I'm sure it would have been tastier with the right seasonings but it was delicious. I will definitely make them again with the chili lime. Photos on instagram, ggsster.
