Every so often I’ll find myself knee deep in jalapeños – perhaps I’m exaggerating… but we’ll have more than what we feel like we can realistically use.
While I typically aim to use them for making homemade salsa (like this delicious Avocado Tomatillo Salsa), more times than not, my favorite way to use them quickly is to slice them up.
Don’t ever forget to wear gloves. Hoo-boy. I have learned the hard way – – it’s not a fun experience!
Rinse all of those jalapeños, slice them up, and throw them in a 2-quart canning jar. Pick up a fermenting kit and let them sit for a few weeks, and use them to make fermented jalapeño hot sauce. It’s mighty amazing and one of the best ways one can use an abundance of jalapeños in a hurry.
However… sometimes we’re looking for a delicious way to make a last minute party appetizer for friends and family, perhaps the New Year, or a football game, and these deep fried Jalapeño slices are perfection!
And best when served with melted cheese or this Jalapeño spread. They are exactly what you might order as an appetizer at your favorite restaurant and pay top dollar for — but why go out when you can stay in?
Making your own appetizer at home is sometimes more enjoyable because you can sit and eat it in the comfort of your sofa with nice fuzzy socks and a furry blanket.
Gather a few simple ingredients – eggs, flour, a cup of beer, seasonings, and oil – then slice up your jalapeños and prepare to wow yourself with one of the best appetizers you may ever make at home for yourself.
These yummy treats are sinfully delicious!
