Simple, Sweet, and Spicy

Looking for something that will make your tacos, hot dogs or chili go from just okay to amazing? Well, you’re in luck because I have just the thing for you. Jalapenos. Sweet jalapenos. I know. It sounds a bit weird. Almost like an oxymoron. But, like chocolate covered bacon, you just have to try it and see for yourself. Plus, they’re unbelievably easy to make.

Slice up jalapenos.
