Tasty Tuesday Crab Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers!

Lisa was kind enough not only to provide us with her DH's recipe!

Crab Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

12 large jalapeno peppers
4 oz. Dungeness crabmeat, well drained
1/3 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup minced green bell pepper
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup beer
Corn oil for deep frying
All purpose flour
1/2 Hass avocado, peeled, diced
1/2 mild salsa drained
1 tablespoon mayonnaise


Starting just below the stem, cut jalapenos lengthwise in half, leaving the stems attached. Remove all seeds and core-completely. Place jalapenos in heavy medium saucepan. Cover with cold water and bring to simmer. Drain. Repeat process. Dry jalapenos with paper towels. (My hubby tells me that this step is to somewhat soften the jalapenos. You don't want them too soft though!)
Combine crab, onion, bell pepper and mayonnaise in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Fill jalapeno cavities with crab mixture. Press halves together to compress filling. (You can do this step up to 4 hours ahead of cooking. Just cover and chill)

Place 1/2 cup flour in bowl. Gradually whisk in beer. Let stand 30 minutes.

Heat oil in heavy deep pot to 375 degrees F. Whisk batter to smooth. Dredge jalapenos in flour. Holding stem end, dip into batter to coat completely and depp fry in batches until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer jalapenos topaper towels and drain.

Combine avocado, salsa and mayonnaise in small bowl. Season to taste. Enjoy!

Having not actually made these myself, it does sound a bit involved, however, Jamie has made them several times now, so he's got it DOWN! We do not use the *salsa* that the recipe recommends. Instead, my hubby found in the Asian foods isle a sweet/sour type sauce. It's Vietnamese I think and the company name is Mae Ploy. It's called Sweet Chili Sauce and is a 25 fl. oz. bottle. It's delicious with the jalapenos because it is sweet and spicy at the same time. If you've had Thai or Vietnamese food every, it's that reddish orange sauce that they give you with the egg rolls or spring rolls. It's not the same as the red sauce at Chinese food places, although that would probably work too...you just wouldn't have the spiciness. Just a note, because you remove the insides of the jalapeno, the end result is not *hot* like you would think biting into a jalapeno would be. It's really good! Enjoy!


  1. Oh my I do like that picture indeed. I wouldn't mind a feel here or there.

    And that recipe sounds absolutely delicious :D

  2. Not to sure about the recipe, not into Jalapeno's, but the double whammy of the picture just made my day!!! Who said a mirror is not a girls best friend, had not seen this bad boy! He is as hot as a Jalapeno!

  3. VERY TASTY!!! I'm a Virgin when it comes to lots of spice. I have to grab the MILD. And Jalapeno's are way out of my comfort zone. BUTT I'd gladly help Ana feel this Miguel up. He's HOT and that's just fine. And OMG I like is fine furry behind. We could maybe take turns feeding him. I bet he'd like Crab stuffed in his peppers. You think? Ana, I hope you have insulated gloves.
    I better go get something sexy on. I've a date with Agent Riordan again this morning. More Hands on training you know. LOL!!!

  4. Yummmm. I have suddenly developed a craving for...crab stuffed jalapeños. ;) Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Just in case you haven't tried it yet, be sure to click on Miguel. He gets BIGGER!!!!

    Me, I absolutely adore jalapenos and when my crop is ready to pick, you can bet I'm gonna find me some crab to stuff them with! Thanks for a great recipe and a great pic, Lisa!

  6. A HOT hunk and a HOT recipe!




  7. hey ya ladies!

    ya know, i think this fella shaves, but only half his butt! u can clearly see the line at where he stops shaving...lol

    the recipe looks really yummy. i think im gonna have 2 try this 1 also.

  8. Well, this was a nice surprise! I promise ladies-don't be scared of the jalapenos-they are very mile after you've seeded and par cooked to soften! The combonation of flavors is really good.

    And Miguel, well he's just too cute!

  9. HaHa Paulette,
    I thought that's his tan line. He is very hairy dude. So I bet he has to shave often. I volunteer to help. Anyone else?
    But no one touches the Hairy wolf Balls. That's just the way I like it.
    My computer tech gave me a freebie. And now my system is humming. He had the best aftershave. I still can smell it. Yummy.

  10. I find Miguel's yummydoodle different looking but I'm guessing it's because he's uncircumcised. It doesn't take away from his face, however:) Love the three way mirror.

    I'm not into jalapenos either...even when somebody tells me they're "mild";) Their definition of "mild" is generally different than my own. I'm sure it would be quite tasty for those who like peppers.

  11. A freebie, huh? What KIND of freebie?

  12. I'm not very fond of that uncut look, either, Nancy, but it's certainly natural!

  13. lol DD

    hairy wolf balls. all that i can think of is rocky mountain oysters

    is that on the menu 2???

  14. My, his jalapeno looks stuffed too.
    Cheryl, I see your back to matching pictures & recipes LOL.

  15. Had to go back to look at the butt.
    Okay I'm good now.

  16. Cheryl,
    My Irish Computer Technician Agent Riordan taught me some new tricks. For a Jaguar I was a quick learner. I learned the right strokes quickly. My HP was purring. So he said: I did you for free. I said: It was my pleasure.
    Yes, Nancy he's Brazilian and they don't want that knife touching the skin of their Yummydoodles.
    No, No Paulette. Not the Oysters either.

  17. Diva Donna...I sure could have used Riordan's freebie today or his yummydoodle to distract me:) About once a year or so I lose the sound on my computer. It drives me bat shit because it's JUST NOT THAT EASY to get it back again...I usually waste some hours doing it. I had also had lustful thoughts about Cheryl living with an IT expert....
