Crab Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

Dee Stillwell


I wanted to make these poppers for the 4th of July. Since it was so hot we decided to do everything on the grill, including the hordourves..crab stuffed poppers and Buffalo chicken dip..It worked great and were very yummy.

How to Make Crab Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers


  1. Line grill safe cookie sheet with HD foil. Cut peppers in half lenghtwise and remove seeds and membrane. (can be one the day ahead)I use latex gloves for this. A couple of times I haven't and paid the price. ouch! Place pepper halves on lined cookie sheet.
  2. Mix together all other ingredients. If using imitation krab, chop till flakey in food processor. and stuff peppers with mixture. Grill for about 20 minutes until bubbly and browned. Let cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
  3. You can also bake these in the oven. I bake them @400 degrees for 20 minutes and then broil for 2-3 minutes. yummmm
