Recipe Thursday - Cucumber Cups Stuffed With Spicy Crab

Cucumber Cups Stuffed with Spicy Crab


3 long cucumbers
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup crab meat, excess water removed
1 tsp hot pepper sauce (Tabasco or tapito)
1 tsp brown mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs minced green onion
Garnish with chili powder or paprika if desired

Remove the peel from the cucumbers using a vegetable peeler. Cut the cucumber into 2 inch slices. Using a small melon baller, scoop out most of the inside. You want to leave the walls and a thick portion of the bottom intact.

I made these for a recent Thirty-one party I hosted.  They were super easy and delicious!  I made the crab mixture the night before and the actual scooping out the cucumbers took 5 - 10 minutes.  So easy, fun and a healthy appetizer to serve your quests.
Seafood is not one of my favorites food.  So when I decided to make the Cucumber Cups stuffed with Spicy crab I was a little concerned that I would not like them.  I was so pleasantly surprised and they were a huge hit at my party!!
Thanks to Domestic Fits for this awesome recipe!!
