I've had this idea rattling around in my brain for a while: Make ABTs with refried beans. (I am not 100% sure they are technically ABTs, see note below.) Not just any refried beans, but loaded refried beans. I got my chance today.
So today I made refried beans: black beans with 5 kinds of peppers (fresh serrano, jalapeno, fresno, and NM red powder, and ancho powder), onion, Mexican oregano, and garlic. Then I cut some poblanos in half and stuffed them with the refried beans and put sharp cheddar over the top. Then I put a chunk of mesquite wood on a hot grill, got her smoking, and then added the stuffed peppers over direct heat. Mmmm... I ate 5 half-peppers, so I'm gonna be sorry tomorrow
Note: I am not sure if ABTs are required to have bacon and/or need to be slow-smoked. Mine were done in 15 minutes, but I got plenty of smoke flavor. In any case, maybe somebody might apply the idea to real ABTs if these are not.
Here's a pic.
