What to do with a can of pickled jalapenos?

I have a can of pickled jalapenos sitting in my kitchen for more than a year now! How can I best use it up fast?

Any vegetarian suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. I eat them right out of the jar. Or add them to quesadillas with cheese. Top nachos with cheese and pickled jalapeno rings.

      Second that, and they're good on pannini with red onion, roasted peppers, olives, sharp cheese, etc.

        Open mouth. Insert pepper. Chew. Repeat.

        God, I'm a sucker for those puckery bites from Heaven.

    2. I use the pickled jalapenos as a condiment, always have them in the fridge. I will dump the can in a small jar with a twist lid, and then we add them to sandwiches, tacos & burritos, and quesadillas. Just about anything that you want add a little pickled punch too. A year? That's unheard of around here!

      1. I'd put them on hot dogs as a first choice.

        Either that, or I'd dice them up and mix into chicken salad.

        I have to resist the urge to buy/eat too many of these as they bring back terrible flashbacks of my younger days of eating at Subway ...

          And I forgot! Your post reminded me. At times I'll make a really tasty tuna salad with them.

        2. If they're whole you could make a 'T" shaped cut in the side, seed, and stuff them with goat cheese.

            if whole, stuff with monterey jack blended with cheddar, batter and deep fry: poppers!
