Jalapeños are native to Mexico. But they are also grown in New Mexico and Texas where the weather conditions are ideal. The heat of the jalapeño can vary from crop to crop which is why products that contain jalapeños might have a slightly different heat variance in each batch. While relatively low on the heat scale, you can tame the fiery flavor of a fresh pepper – just remove the seeds. Roasting, pickling, and baking the pepper will also help. Our jalapeño nacho slices have a variety of uses outside of meal toppings and Mexican food dishes. Try dicing and adding to salad dressings and salsas for a briny, tangy flavor. Mix pickled jalapeño with richer sauces like mayonnaise-based dressings for tartness or place on top of pizza. Even add a jalapeño slice as a garnish for a Spicy Margarita.
