My jalapeño plants are doing so well this year that I already have more than I know what to do with.

I will make some of my favorite spicy Mexican pickled carrots and jalapeños, and of course I will make salsa.

I like spicy food to a point, but as I am not my big brother, I will not be eating these suckers whole or plain.

I also don’t want to make jalapeño jelly.

Hit me with your other suggestions please, my friends. If you can include a recipe, all the better!

I was once given a jar of Mango Habanero Preserves I liked a lot, I thought it was perfect to spread on the bottom bun of a cheeseburger and wasn't overwhelmingly hot. Might be a good combo with Jalapenos?

Here's an easy Chili and Cheese stuffed Jalapeno recipe:

Chili and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Peppers - Kraft Recipes

Cooking them removes a lot of the heat, at least it seems to me that it does.


*Any extra jalapenos you don't want, you can send them my way

smoke and dry some for chipotles. Easy to keep & store.

they also freeze well for adding to a pot of chili in the winter.

ABTs (Atomic Buffalo Turds). Some folks cut the japs in half, clean out the seeds and veins, stuff them with cream cheese and some cooked meat, wrap in bacon and smoke them. I prefer to use them whole, stuff them with Mexican chorizo, cotija cheese the wrap them in bacon and smoke them. I have a rack just for making them whole and a tool to core them.. I prefer the japs ripe (red).

Roast them like hatch chili's, peel and freeze in small plastic baggies. They will last until next years harvest (or longer).

I'm also a fan of jalapeno poppers, but I don't smoke them or fry them. Cut in half and remove seeds. Pepper and salt the jalapeno halves. Mix up cream cheese, sharp cheddar and cooked Italian sausage (removed from casing. Fill jalapeno halves with mix. Optional - wrap with partially cooked bacon secured with a toothpick. Broil - but place the rack one level down from the broiler. (Slower cooking removes some of the heat from the peppers.)

Some great ideas so far, thanks everybody!

I made some lovely fresh blender salsa last night (2 large jalapenos, 1 very small onion, nearly a pound of garden tomatoes, salt, lime juice), so that's 2 jalapenos down, many to go all summer long.

I just remembered about this delicious cream of jalapeno soup that a local chain restaurant makes (Rockfish). I've looked at the copycat recipe before though, and part of why it's delicious is it's made with a swimming pool full of heavy cream.

No cilantro in the salsa?

I've thought of a few other things to do with those jalapenos. Chiles Toredos (Chiles Toreados) is a great addition to tacos or carne asada - or any mexican style meat. I won't point you to a specific recipe because everybody makes it differently. Personally, I like the ones that include onions. The serrano's in a recipe can easily be substituted with jalapenos.

Jalapeno in cornbread. Make a salsa verde (green salsa with tomatillo's). Lots of people like pepper jelly, but I'm not a fan.

I know what you mean about that cream of jalapeno soup. One of my favorite dishes is cream of poblano soup.


You're making me anxious for the harvest of my shi****o and habandada peppers.

I'm one of those cilantro-tastes-like-soap people! I thought of adding a little mexican oregano, but it didn't need it, with those super fresh garden vegetables. I forgot to say I also added a small clove of garlic.

Chiles toreados and jalapeno corn bread are good ideas.

I've had delicious s h i s h i t o peppers at a sushi place, but I've never had a habanada.
