Number of Servings: 10


    1 pound softened cream cheese
    3 tablespoons minced garlic
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    1/4 cup chopped green onion
    1 tablespoon Chipotle pepper puree (canned peppers in adobo sauce, pureed)
    1/4 cup cream
    1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
    1/2 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
    1 pound crab meat
    1 pound bay shrimp
    3 pounds shredded, frozen hash-brown potatoes
    3 cups Panko bread crumbs


Blend the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth, then fold in the remaining ingredients, blending thoroughly.

To form the tots, pinch off a generous tablespoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Mold into a "tater tot" shape by gently squeezing the sides of the ball to form a cylindrical shape.

These are best deep-fried, but they can be drizzled with oil and baked at 400 F for 10 to 12 minutes.

Whichever cooking method you use, the tots must be very cold before cooking, so refrigerate them for at least 1 to 2 hours. (The tots can also be frozen. Allow them to thaw, refrigerated for 1 to 2 hours.)
