Pepper, Jalapeno, Powder
Botanical Name: Capsicum annum
Jalapeno peppers are wonderfully small but spicy hot peppers. They can be used in a number of ways to season your savory dishes. The first thought you might have when you think of using hot peppers is as an ingredient in Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes. The seasoning is used often to flavor enchilada and chili sauces, but it can also be used in other ways. You can season marinated vegetables such as beans or olives with a sprinkle of this hot pepper. Shellfish such as clams or oysters that will be breaded and deep fried taste remarkable when jalapeno chilis are added.
Warning: Excessive dose may cause gastrointenstinal irritation or heartburn, or exacerbate gastroesophageal reflux. Cayenne preparations irritate the mucous membranes and injured or broken skin.
