My pick for all things Jalapeño flavored !
I love spicy foods, especially jalapeño flavoring! When I am expecting or nursing a baby I have to go without these foods…and it makes me crave them even more!
Lately I have been on a jalapeño frito kick so I thought I would share all my fun jalapeño finds. Keep a glass of water–or milk close…your mouth may need it:)
#1- The Jalapeño Popper Sandwich Melt from MeltyWay. Delicious! The MeltyWay is located only in Utah right now, however…when reading on their website they are looking to expand. I actually want to try cooking this sandwich myself. The sandwich was toasted, with jalapeño slices, cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Let’s just say I didn’t order a big enough drink …but it was totally worth it.
#2- Jalapeño flavored Fritos. I just recently tried these chips and they are tasty! These chips aren’t quite as spicy as you may think, so if you are nervous about the spiciness– these chips would be a good to start. Enjoy!
#3-Jalapeno flavored Cheetos. I mentioned that I can’t eat much spice when I’m pregnant…well I was introduced to these cheetos when I was pregnant and it was rough! I had a major craving for these so you better believe when I could finally eat them, they were constantly on my grocery list. Try them if you haven’t they are divine!
#4 Jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon. Did I mention this post may not be the healthiest? But, if you are going low carb these appetizers would work great and taste great. All you need is jalapeño, cream cheese and bacon. I will link the recipe below. This is a favorite appetizer in our home. Just remember to wear gloves while de-seeding the jalapeño!
#5 Jalapeño flavored jerky from “Rays Jerky.” How did I miss jalepeno flavored jerky until now?? I recently tried Rays Jerky and I devoured the jalepeno flavored jerky. The nice part…low carb, but tasty! I may or may not have saved any jerky for my husband…so I need to order some online so he can try it too. I may order 2 bags this time:)
TIP***When needing to cool down your mouth from the spicy jalapeño flavor, grab some milk instead of water. The dairy neutralizes the spice and helps cool down your mouth.
