I have jalapenos
I bought them mainly because the FDA says I shouldn't. Don't worry, I bought them from my local farmers market so I know they are safe.
The problem, is that I have a low tolerance for spicy food. So I don't cook with them often. My original thought was to make a salsa fresca with one of them, but the tomatoes in my yard are taking their sweet time right now.
Any other thoughts on what I could do with them? I have two pretty good sized ones.
I love that you bought them just because the FDA says you shouldn't... regarding the latest scare and the others too, I don't believe a word of it. Just because of one outbreak, everyone thinks tomatoes or spinach or whatever is poison, it's tomfoolery.
That being said...
How about a mango or cucumber based salsa, maybe some gaucamole too?
To control the heat I will take the seeds our and de-vein the peppers before using them. I find they give a nice kick to mango salsa as one poster suggested. I also like to dice them up and add them to any kind of egg scramble when I want a little heat or will top sandwiches/burgers with the slices.
I slice off the stem ends, run my knife inside to get out the seeds and ribs, and set them standing up in a ramekin. I put a lump of blue cheese in each, then cover the whole bowl with roasted red peppers (out of a jar is fine). Drizzle evoo on top and bake in the toaster oven til the cheese melts..great small plate/tapas offering! Since you have two large ones, slice them thickly into about 3 slices each, then follow the same instruction!!
