    I know everyone has a certain way of prepping peppers for use as ABT's. How do you like to prep them? Perssonally, I'll remove the seeds, but I try to keep the membrane intack as much as possible..

    I remove the seeds & the membrane, then mix them in with the cheese. I like to have a large area to fill up, and I also like the heat.

    I have a few old school potato peelers, and I prefer them to any new school peeler. Long live old school.,,

    I am right there with the seeds only and sometimes I do like Al does and put them in the cream cheese. I do add some tapatio or other hot sauce to my mix.  Love the heat

    I prefer to remove the membrane and seeds.  I usually use a small 1/8 tsp stainless steel measuring spoon for the removal process.  It's small size works well and the edges of the spoon are fairly it cuts well.  I haven't thought about a tater peeler? Hummm....  I like a moderate amount of heat...but most of our guests prefer less.  I usually try to offset the heat by adding pineapple chunks to my stuffing mixture.  Works well.

    Being a person who always looks for the easiest and most efficient way of doing things, I use a pepper corer. Cut off the top and quickly remove seeds and membrane in one step. Bingo! The seeds are secretly added to my sauce and then strained. This way I can deny adding chilis when then start mopping the sweat of their brows when saucing.
