The Heat Is On

Jalapeno Pepper
It's jalapeno harvest time. They look ready, but I still haven't touched them. Now it's time to create a menu so the little suckers can efficiently complete the earth to earth cycle.

After some searching, I've found several interesting ways to use them:

Fettucini with Tomato-Poblano Sauce and Green Chile Goat Cheese Every part of this one sounds delicious to me.

Grilled Halibut with Strawberry, Jalapeno Salsa When I worked at a restaurant, one of the chefs came out with a chocolate jalapeno cake, thereby introducing me to the jarringly pleasing sweet-hot sensation. I think this recipe sounds weird enough to be awesome.

Along those same lines, I'm also partial to trying the Jalapeno Pepper Jelly.

How would you use your jalapenos?

stealthily slip them unexpectedly into foods, and then deny all knowledge of adding them
