What to Do With Jalapenos

A few weeks ago, we planted a bunch of jalapeno plants.

They seem to be growing nicely.
In fact, if you look close....
... you'll see flowers! Pre-jalapenos!

I love spicy foods and am looking forward to cooking with these little guys when we get them. I also am looking forward to making my own chipotles. Here's a recipe for chipotles in adobo sauce that I'll be trying later this summer!

Chipotles in Adobo Sauce

7 to 10 medium-sized dried chipotle chiles, stemmed and slit lengthwise
1/3 cup onion, cut in 1/2-inch slices
5 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Combine all of the ingredients in a pan with 3 cups of water. Cover and cook over very low heat for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until the chilies are very soft and the liquid has been reduced to 1 cup. This recipe will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
