Do not fear the simple little green pepper known as the jalapeño, when handled properly you will be able to enjoy it's succulent savory heat in any recipe you choose! It only takes a moment to master cutting, chopping or dicing one up without loosing an eye to the heat of capsaicin.
And besides the great taste they add to your recipe, they are really a very healthy menu item.
Did you know:
One jalapeño contains more than the daily dietary requirement of vitamin C, as well as vitamin K and many B vitamins
It contains a large amount of potassium, which your body needs
It supplies anti-oxidants to help tissue repair and boost the immune system
- and this one I really like the idea of... they can boost metabolism making weight loss easier and quicker!
