First Shot at ABT's Hmmmm they were ok!

Took my first shot at ABT's and they were ok.  Not fabulous just ok.  Think I may have took too much of the spicy inside out as there was little to no spicy taste in them.  The ones I made with Chocolate chip cookie dough as the stuffing were great! The others I used cream cheese mixed with sharp cheddar, pepper, salt, garlic, and red pepper then wrapped in bacon.

Stuffing Mixed


Hollowed out jalapeños  


These were the ingredients I used


Stuffed them by putting mixture in zip loc bag and cutting bottom corner off


Ready to go on the grill  Did some boats and some in the stand and a couple with chocolate chip cookie batter


Finished product.

    I mix some chopped pulled pork and rub into the cream cheese, try something like that or search for Kristi's Shrimp ABT's

    I am a fan of your cream cheese and goat cheese mixed. Also I like a little thicker bacon and crisp it up more. Just my 2 cents.

    If you are field stripping them-no seeds and no veins, then you need to juice them up with pepper jack or habaneo cheese along with the rest of the filling.  Keeps you healthy!

    I agree with Mickey the thicker bacon is better for ABTs.  But you had a great cook - now the fun is to refine it.  Also agree with the pulled pork a great option.  I usually just keep it simple and only do cream cheese, bacon and jalapenos.  less is more in my opinion.  light on the rub too - the bacon gives all the flavor.

    Good ingredients equals good flavor. Fat free cream cheese is not wonderful. Add a little rub or spice and baste with a barbecue sauce just before they are finished cooking. ;;)

    I actually like the thin bacon with ABTs. You can stretch a half slice around and it sticks without toothpicks.

    I tried both thick and regular/thin bacon. Regular/thin is better IMO. Crisps up better and easier to wrap.

    I've tried all the exotic mixes for a filling but we always come back to the simple stuff. 
    Split peppers lengthwise, fill with cream cheese, drop a 1/2 cooked casing removed butterflied chorizo on it, wrap with room temp bacon (it will tighten as it cooks - no toothpicks needed).
    Direct or indirect as you choose.
