ABT questions

If you add crab or shrimp to the cream cheese, is it cooked or raw?
Do you just split the jalapeno in half and scrap out the seeds or do you have scrap more to reduce the heat?
I have never looked for jalapeno at the grocery store, are they easy to find in chains?[p]Thanks

    JimF,
    i don't cook the crab... it's canned though.
    the heat in peppers is mostly in the white tissus to which the seeds are attached. i take the seeds but leave the white veins. that's where the heat is.[p]jalapenos are unavoidable up here in grocery stores (Boston area). you shouldn't have to roam far

    JimF,
    By the time the bacon gets crisp, a raw shrimp will be well done. Most any grocery store carries jalapenos. I pull off the stem, split lengthwise, and scrape out the stems and seeds. -RP

    JimF,
    I find them in giant all the time. Be carefull when handling the pepper, preferably use plastic bags on your hands. I cut up about a lb of peppers and my hands were burning up for hours.

    JimF,[p]I recommend trying them as everyone else described first, just remove the seed and most of the white membrane, then cook.[p]Allegedly, if they are too hot for you, you can reduce the heat of the peppers by soaking for a few hours in ice water with a teaspoon of vinegar prior to stuffing them. I've never tried this, but a friend of mine does this and swears it works.

    Fidel,
    Hummmmm!!! That's a thought. Wonder how "pickled" jalapenos would work for ABT's???[p]My neighbors gave us a deep fryer for our Chicken Coop. We've only used it once but I thought I might try deep frying some traditionally built ABT's to see what they would taste like. Cut'em in slices and serve. Anyone ever try it?[p]Spring "Fry Me A Sliver" Chicken

    Spring Chicken,
    Pickled would be awful.They are kind of soft to begin with.Just think what the steam effect would have.Fresh and fried sounds good.But do not do it on the Egg(you of all people should know better.)We dont want yuou to burn down the chicken coop.

    darnoc,[p] It was the Lawn Ranger Winter home that almost burnt down because of a deep frying event...[p] You know that that house he was trying to sell that got him so frustrated that he was forced to take on his son as a partner to finish the back log of tools..[p]Dayum that was a long sentence..[p]

    Spring Chicken,
    I wouldn’t try to fry the traditional built ABTs because the cream cheese will tend to melt out and really mess up your grease. Just my .02 from a lot of deep-frying of different things. Now I’m not saying what you had left wouldn’t taste great but the cheese flavor would be lacking and cheese would be floating around in the grease. Popsicle

    Popsicle,
    Yea... I kinda figured that part out. I was just thinking a "what if" thought, and maybe just hollow out a jalapeno with an apple corer, fill it with some frozen pre-cooked sausage, wrap it well with bacon and deep fry it. Then maybe serve some cream cheese as a side or spread-on after it's cooked.[p]May be something to do just before draining the cooking oil from the fryer, huh?[p]Spring "Anything's Possible Except Maybe Striking A Match On A Wet Bar Of Soap" Chicken[p]

    Spring Chicken,
    I always enjoy your sign offs but I gotta ask if you have actually tried that one. lol

  • Spring ChickenSpring Chicken Posts: 9,712
    Rusty Rooster,
    As a matter of fact, yes, when I was about twelve and was told that striking a match on a wet bar of soap was impossible. I tried using most of a full box of kitchen matches. No, it didn't work, but I tried to cheat by using a bar of Lava. I might give it another try using a high speed drill or something. Naaaaaa... waste of time.[p]Spring "Everything Is Possible Until Proven Not" Chicken

    You just proved that you were once a boy scout. Too many times I have seen boys attempt such feats.

    Spring Chicken,
    Mmmmmmmm. If you heat a 50/50 mix of cream cheese and milk, very gently, you can add whatever punch you want (fresh cracked pepper, some rub, a few variations on the theme) and serve as a dipping sauce.[p]Gaining weight just thinking about it.[p]JT
