Jalapeño peppers are the best peppers. Try to convince us otherwise!
What’s not to love? Registering between 2,500 and 8,000 units on the Scoville Scale, these Mexican peppers strike a perfect balance between mild and spicy, adding a deliciously warm and green flavor to all sorts of dishes.
Jalapeños are truly a versatile pepper, lending their zesty flavor to cookies, breads, cocktails, sauces, pickles, and more. And we’ve got you covered regardless of whether or not they’re in season:
Dried Jalapeño Chiles in diced or powder form are perfect for cooler weather cooking. Add them to soups and stews, breads, and southwestern dishes. The powder will pack a bit more oomph than the diced variety, so use conservatively.
Our new Jalapeño Lime White Balsamic Vinegar is perfect all year round. Try using it as a marinade for fish, chicken, and pork before heading to the grill. Or create a tasty vinaigrette by combining it with one of our infused olive oils (Basil Infused and Blood Orange Fused olive oils are good choices). A drizzle also adds depth to salsa, pico de gallo, fresh fruit, margaritas, and homemade sauces.
Like hot sauces? For a jalapeño-y hot sauce, try a bottle of Forbidden Fruit or Triple Inferno flavored Hell Raising Hot Sauces.
