Jalapeno soup. Have you ever heard of anything so tempting? This was on the docket for so long. We wish we hadn't waited so long to get to the actual creation. There are no words for how delicious this was. No exaggeration, we were licking the bowls and there was nothing left. Thank goodness no one can see us when testing recipes, table manners may not always be present.
Our garden is starting to really produce it's summer bounty. This means plenty of peppers of all sorts. An interesting note is that the same pepper and same plant can produce fruit of varying levels of spiciness. Roasting the peppers calms the heat.
What is your favorite way to enjoy jalapenos?
