This is a great recipe I found for a popper that is a tad bit healthier than all those deep fried jalapeno poppers.
I'm one of those people who has to be very careful with hot peppers - the more powerful ones can actually blister my mouth! (Though smoked peppers don't seem to have that effect on me.)
I'm quite fond of pickled foods - I get that from my dad, and I love pepperoncini so this recipe caught my eye. Here's the text recipe:
1 Pound of Cream Cheese
8 Ounces of Shredded Crab Meat
1 Tsp. Dried Thyme Leaves
1 Tsp. Fresh Cilantro
1 Tsp. Garlic Salt
Cut the stem off the pepperoncini, scrape out the seeds and set aside. Combine the cream cheese, thyme leaves, cilantro and garlic salt. Gently mix in the crab meat. Place the mixture in a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with a small hole in one bottom corner) and pipe into the peppers. Dip the cream cheese end in the chopped cilantro for decoration.
Try these with some of my designer martinis from The Martini Diva and pat yourself on the back for enjoying a popper version that isn't deep fried!
