Thanks, folks. mrs. fatback bought a frozen bag of those tiny, precooked shrimp, so that pretty much settled "cooked vs. raw" decision. I diced them up pretty finely, mixed with cream cheese, green onion, and seasoning salt. I did another batch with some diced grilled chicken, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, and seasoning salt. They were both delicious, and a huge hit.
A couple of thing's I'll do differently next time: If I buy frozen shrimp again, I will give it more time to thaw so I can extract more water from them. Also, I will try Old Bay in lieu of the regular seasoning salt.
Anyway, having done my first batch of ABT's, I now see that they're pretty hard to screw up. And the aroma of those peppers coming off the BSKD...OH MY GOD!!!
I promise I will bring it with Qvue one of these days.
