I like the idea of ABt's. I love jalapenos but I hate cream cheese. PDT_Armataz_01_27.gif Are their any recipes without cream cheese? Is there a good alternative that I could use?? Thanks in advance.

use your imagination try something that you like, or that you think might be better,then let us know how it turned out.

Any cheese practically. Mozz would be a good choice for the texture. Or perhaps a camembert <Sp?> or a brie as well.

How can ya not like cream cheese? ;{)

I don't like cream cheese either. I use Pepper Jack. I buy it in the small blocks, cut it into medium slices & stuff it in there longways. Great with sausage!!!

Alternative to Cream Cheese

I just did some ABTs for first time today and used a grated blend of Provolone,Motzerella, and Romano. They are pretty good. I mixed the cheese with a mild Italian Sausage.

You can onit cheese altogether and go a diifferent route with a compound butter. Such as a casino butter. Its nice to add a bit of bread crumb in there to aid in stabilaty when they cook. Wrap some casino butter with some rock shrimp or crab meat real or fake.

1/3 c sliced fresh parsley
1 tsp hot sauce
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
4 green onions, sliced
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 c sliced red bell pepper
1 lb unsalted butter, softened
3 tbsps white wine
2 tab frsh bread crumb
Step #1 Pulse first 5 ingredients in a food processor/blender until mixd.
Step #2 Add remaining ingredients; process until well mixed, stopping to
scrape down sides.
Step #3 add bread crumb last with final few pulses
Step #4 Cover up; put in the fridge for at least a day or freeze.

just use whatever you have on hand or stuff that you like.
I've used pepper jack, chipotle cheddar, corn bread mix, little smokies, mozz, ricotta, re-fried beans, salsa. It's all good.

I made some today with cheddar cheese spread (like for crackers) and grilled chicken. Came out pretty good.

Steak Fajita ABTs

Thanks for the input. I made my first set of ABTs based on your advice. I used some of the white mexican "queso" cheese. I had a leftover ribeye I had grilled a couple days ago. I cut thin slices and spiced it up a bit and added it to the ABTs. I wrapped it in bacon and crossed my fingers. They turned out great! I ate them all before I remembered to take any pictures. Thanks for the advice.

Try some smoked Montery Jack, or smoked cheddar.

Dont forget trying LESS cream cheese. Use enough and it becomes a dominant flavor, use just a bit and it add a bit of "velveeta texture" to what ever else you have in there. Cream cheese is real stable, doesnt seperate into oil and chewy cheese. Its good just for that reason.
