Learn how to make jalapeno appetizer recipes because your party guests love them. First, before we go any farther, let me remind you to use plastic gloves when handling these hot peppers. You will be happy you did! Believe me, it only took one time of my hands burning and now I never forget the gloves.
Jalapeno peppers come in many different degrees of “heat”. The problem is that we generally do not know how hot they are until we eat them. Even then, we might eat one pepper which is fairly mild but the very next one might be extremely hot. You might think because you grow your own that you will know how hot or mild they will be.
Growing your own does not determine what the heat will be in your peppers. As you learn how to make jalapeno appetizer recipes you will find there are so many variables which determine the heat of the peppers. Of course the type of jalapeno pepper you plant has some effect. It could also be as simple as the weather temperatures during the growing season or the rainfall. I am just warning you to be prepared for anything!
There are a lot of people who simply do not like hot peppers and do not even want to try them. It is worth learning how to make jalapeno appetizer recipes for those who do want them. Most of these people not only want them but love them. My family members are some of these people. We cannot stop eating them no matter how hot they are. We simply grab a piece of bread and a glass of water to go with them.
Since I learned how to make jalapeno appetizer recipes, I always keep a large bag of peppers in my freezer. For most recipes, these work well. I use them chopped in all kinds of salsa recipes and dips. They are also great stuffed whole if they are fried or baked. About the only time I would not use frozen peppers is if I stuff them and they are not fried or baked but served fresh. When they thaw, they are simply too soft for these recipes.
