Benefits of Jalapeno
Cooking with Jalapenos
Jalapeno peppers aren t only for nachos. They are versatile enough to complement both savory and sweet dishes. Add jalapenos to plain yogurt, mashed avocados or hummus for a spicy dip. Try them in a favorite curry or stir fry dish, or toss them into melted chocolate or frozen yogurt. Choose fresh jalapenos over canned for maximum flavor and nutrient benefits. Beware when cutting fresh jalapenos, because the capsaicin can burn your skin and eyes. Wear gloves while handling jalapenos, or wash your hands when finished.
