Your favorite heavy-on-jalapeno recipes
Hey there. We are the lucky recipients of a HUGE (4+ lbs.) bag of jalapenos from our boss' garden. We are eager to burn through them before they turn. What's your favorite recipe that is heavy on the jalapenos? And on a related note, does anyone have experience with freezing jalapenos--do they thaw well? Does freezing significantly affect their taste and texture?
Thanks in advance, Chowhounders!
How about Cowboy Candy
3 cups sliced jalepenos (seeded and ribs removed, or leave in some seeds if more heat is desired)
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
Bring to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20 minutes till thickened. Recipe may be doubled
Use as a relish, or a spread on sandwiches.
I have never made them but I thought of Jalapeño poppers - you can find a variety of recipes on line.
Periodically, I purchase different types of peppers, e.g., Italian Long Hots, Cherry Peppers and Jalapeno's, and roast them in Olive Oil with a sprinkle of Kosher Salt. I then keep them in a food storage container to have with cold cut sandwiches, sausage heroes, burgers or hot dogs. I also chop up the different peppers and make a relish of sorts to spread onto sandwiches or as a topping for burgers and dogs.
Jalapeno slices raw or flash fried in oil are great in Asian cooking too. Main dishes or soups to add a little heat.
