I'm unsure if I should post my own fav recipe that includes jalapenos. I'm going to anyway..and if it can't count, that's ok because ya'll gotta try these

-Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos-

8-10 jalapenos, remove cap, deseed carefully, keep cap

8-10 slices of good quality bacon

1 8oz package cream cheese

After deseeding jalapenos, wash hands! Then divide the cream cheese into 8-10 pieces depending on how many jalapenos you're using. Stuff pieces of cream cheese into jalapenos replace cap. Use some cream cheese off your finger to create a seal, kind of Wrap bacon around and over cap securing with a toothpick.
Grill over hot coals until bacon is brown and crisp. About 15 min. Or ovenbake at 400 for about 15-17 min.

Sure, it can count. And that recipe sounds fab!

Default Pickled Jalapeno Peppers

1/2 pound fresh jalapenos
1 3/4 cups white vinegar
2-4 cloves garlic, peeled
1 teaspoon kosher salt (don't substitute)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric

Wash peppers; cut off the stems. (use gloves!) Slice peppers into rings and place them in a pint mason jar with the garlic.

Blend vinegar, salt and turmeric in a small saucepan and heat to boiling. Pour over the peppers. Allow to cool, and seal lid with the band, to just tight.
Store at least 2 days in refrigerator. Will keep about two months.

Default Spicy Chicken Chili Verde

I love chili because it is inexpensive to make and leftovers freeze well, and this is a recipe I wrote down after making it because it wound up being so good.

Get a stockpot. Fill about 1/2 of the way with water, depending on the size of the pot and how thick you want your chili.

Add a couple cans of chicken broth, or chicken bouillon cubes if you prefer.
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, diced & browned
2 or 3 cans jalape๑o peppers, drained, or use fresh if you have them.
One haba๑ero pepper, diced. You don't need more than one unless you really, really like it hot.
1 pound fresh tomatillos, which can be pureed in a blender if you prefer. I just cleaned them, chopped them up, and added them in.
2 cans drained white beans, such as cannellini
1 onion, chopped up
1/2 cup beer or white wine
Salt & pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste (I get the green haba๑ero kind, a little goes a long ways)
A little bit of lime juice goes very well with this.

This will be spicy, but is quite good when finished.

Easy Pico-de-Gallo

3 Jalapenos, stems, seeds and ribs removed
4 medium to large tomatoes
1 medium onion
large handful cilantro leaves
juice of one lime
seasoned salt to taste
garlic salt to taste

Dice all of the vegetables and cilantro into chip-friendly-sized pieces. Mix together and add the lime juice and salts. Mix well. Serve with warmed chips. For easy guacamole, smash up an avocado and mix in a couple spoonfuls of the pico.

This recipe calls for hot pepper flakes. I'm not sure that counts as jalapenos, but I wanted to share the recipe anyway.

Spaghetti alla puttanesca

2 Tbsp olive oil (okay, EVOO, if you insist!)
1 small onion, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped fine (or 1 can diced tomatoes)
10 black olives, chopped
pinch hot pepper flakes
8 oz. spaghetti or linguini
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, hot pepper flakes and olives, and simmer about ten minutes: this is good to do while the spaghetti is cooking. Drain the spaghetti, mix everything together, and serve.
