I tried my hand at ABT's...and they were WAYYYYYY too HOTTTTT!!! Even Jeff was...well...about to choke (I think....those were jalapeno induced tears running down his face...although, he could've been crying happy tears I suppose....)
I did remove the seeds, but I didn't slice them in half, so maybe there was just too much jalapeno altogether? I do think I laid hold of a REALLLY hot batch of peppers, because we like hot stuff, and those things were nearly inedible...I was second guessing myself, wondering if I even bought jalapenos...they were cooked quite well done, so...it had to either be a hot bunch or the fact that I left them whole?????
So...I suppose next time I'll try halving them, and if that doesn't work, we'll have to try a milder pepper.
