ABUELO’S BACON-WRAPPED STUFFED SHRIMPOnce again I have Abuelo’s on my mind. Why, because we are about to go to Orlando and they happen to have one of their restaurants in Kissimmee. If you’ve ever read my travel blog you know I am a freak about Abuelo’s food. It’s my all time favorite restaurant.

Well, every now and then I get lucky and find one of their recipes! Sometimes it’s just a copycat recipe and sometimes it’s the real deal. This time I found one their actual recipes with bacon on their Facebook page! Score!

Jalapeño Slivers – 1 pershrimp

Mixed Cheese – ¼ oz. pershrimp

Bacon slices– 1 per shrimp

10″Skewer – 1 per 3 shrimp
