The Mexican Association of Food Packers is now appealing to the European Union to recognize the geographical origin and denomination for jalapeños—and chipotles—to be Mexico only.
A couple of weeks ago, Brent Timm, the host of SnackChat Live, broke the story on the new Mexican Jalapeño Peanut M&M’s on Instagram.
Happy Cinco de Mayo! We’ve got a quick, easy recipe for spicy fish tacos for you today.
I could pound fish tacos all day. Breaded white fish, mayo, salsa, cabbage, and a tortilla? Oh, hell yeah.
We don’t usually think about grilling pickled peppers, but for some reason they turn out great. Just remember not to over-grill the peppers or they may blacken on the outside. Note that although some commercial cherry peppers are called “hot” by the manufacturers, they are usually rather mild. This recipe is reminiscent of the wonderful canned stuffed jalapeños from Mexico–in fact, this recipe works with pickled jalapeños as well.
A reader recently emailed us, asking if there was a way to tone down the heat level in the canned jalapenos called for his chile relleno recipe. Sadly, there is no way to cool ’em down, since they’ve been processed for canning. What you can do, is substitute milder canned chiles. We recommend New Mexico or Anaheim peppers, which are much milder but still packed with flavor.
A lighter alternative than vodka-based Bloody Mary mixes!
