Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeños

These Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeños are clearly a take on the beloved Texan cheese-stuffed, breaded and fried poppers, but instead of going for cheddar or plain old cream cheese, Fain fills hers with a grown up mix of kicked up goat cheese mixed with spicy crumbles of chorizo. More

Zero Proof: Chili Peach Juice

Summer is officially in full swing at my local farmer's market: piles of peaches, plums, and apricots are everywhere. My small garden is also bearing fruit, and the pots are bursting with chili peppers. This time of year, pick one and two grow back in its place. Pico de gallo and fruit salsas are always an option, but the peppers are coming in fast and I need something that helps the pile-up. More

Candied Jalapeños

These sweet, very hot candied jalapeños work equally well as a cocktail garnish, sandwich condiment, cupcake topper, or guacamole ingredient. The cayenne adds even more spice. Feel free to omit it if you prefer.... More

Serious Heat: Sizzling Shrimp Popcorn with Jalapeños

I once saw a friend top their movie popcorn with the pickled jalapeños meant for the nachos—confiding that they enjoyed not just the spice of the chiles in their popcorn, but also the pickling juice oozing all over it. Then I came across Todd English's recipe for Sizzling Shrimp Popcorn with Jalapeños and was further intrigued. I wasn't sure about the recipe—okay, I'm down to try fresh jalapeños topped over my popcorn, but adding shrimp to the mix? However, I'm an equal-opportunity popcorn eater, so I gave it a whirl. More

Marinated Feta Cheese with Jalapeños

I was recently introduced to the wonder that is marinated feta cheese in olive oil, which mellows out the sharpness of this cheese. Following the fabulous David Lebovitz's instructions for making this own my own, a commenter on his blog wondered about adding jalapeño. That's all the nudging I needed. Adding two jalapeños gives a sultry heat to the finish of the feta. More

Serious Heat: Okra-Fried Jalapenos

It's always exciting when someone presents you with a new way to prepare a dish that had never crossed your mind before. This was the case while I was interviewing Chattanooga resident and chef Kent Whitaker for an upcoming article in on tailgating. He mentioned his favorite way to eat jalapenos—battered and fried a la okra and dipped in a creamy horseradish sauce. More

Dinner Tonight: Ginger and Cilantro Baked Tilapia

Mostly I was just interested in the sauce in this recipe, which is an aromatic combination of garlic, ginger, and cilantro. Added to that is a nice punch of jalapeno and some depth from soy sauce, white wine, and sesame oil. After blending all these ingredients up, you pour the mixture over the tilapia, place it all in a baking dish for ten minutes, and there you have it—dinner is done. How easy is that? More
