These are awesome! Brought them to a potluck event and received rave reviews and the dish was empty within 30 minutes.

These are good cold or hot. Most prefer hot.

I use medium shrimp and chop them into halves or thirds and mix them into the cream cheese mixture. I've made these at least 5 times now and people love them. There not too hot. If you want them hotter, don't remove the seeds or membrane. We like them hot. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

I did not really care for these at all, I think I like the breaded ones much better.
