Spicy and sweet — a perfect blend for Valentine's.

Quick, simple, and delicious, these quesadillas let the clean flavors of mahimahi truly shine. I like a fair amount of heat in my "Mexican" food but if you want to tone it down, just use fewer jalapeños.Click here to see Quesadillas to Suit Every Taste.

Mango and thyme? The unusual combination works wonders. Try this and other killer tequila cocktails for summer.

After undergoing a $5 million transformation last year, the newly restyled W San Diego has once again set the bar high with their Blackberry Mary, a muddled mix of Stoli Hot Vodka, tomato-based bloody mix, lime juice, lemon juice, chile syrup, dash of salt and pepper, and garnished with picked bacon slice, jalapeño slices, cucumber round slice, and blackberries.

At the end of a long workday, my favorite kind of recipe to make is one that requires minimal attention and prep. This salmon recipe is one such example. I let a side of quinoa simmer away while this was in the oven, and if you like, you can make some salad as the salmon cooks, too. Getting dinner on the table easily is all about multitasking.Click here to see 8 Great Salmon Recipes.

Like slothful shaking, improper muddling ruins more cocktails than bad liquor ever did. To do it right, make sure you have a long muddler so you don’t scrape your knuckles on the rim of the glass, and that it’s not made of lacquered wood (that stuff chips off and gets into your drink). Muddle in a pint glass or shaker cup — something sturdy — on a stable surface. Standing over your cup, press down and twist until all the juice is squeezed out of the fruit and the herbs are bruised but not pulverized. Try this recipe for my Jalapeño Mojito to perfect your muddling skills.

Yet again, we have another perfect guacamole recipe to work with. This one allows for creativity and flexibility, while keeping all of the basic principles of making guacamole intact.

It was more than a decade ago that I fell in love with the flautas at Chico's Tacos in El Paso, Texas. That visit started a craving that was finally, finally sated, in New York City no less. Chico's Tacos were brought back from Texas, special delivery, packaged in Tupperware that was more expensive than the actual tacos, frozen until I could get to them, and finally reconstituted (Thanks, Mom).Eating Chico's Tacos once again did two things. First, it made the need to be able to eat them more consistently a necessity. Second, tasting the original rendition reestablished the flavor profile required to be able to do that. Crispy fried taquitos, covered in thinly shredded cheese, and drenched in red watery sauce — dripping, crunchy, melted cheese-drink-the-sauce flautas goodness.Creating a recipe for a renowned dish is tricky. You can theorize, you can do trial and error, or you can do what was done here: Look to see what's out there already. There's no official site for Chico's Tacos and, as far as anyone can seem to tell, no officlal recipe out there for how to best make these signature tacos.The two most prominent recipes out there are by The Stanton Magazine and Mexican American Border Cooking. They provide some really insightful guidance on different possible approaches to a successful dish. This recipe uses a home fryer and fresh ingredients for all components for a rendition that looks and tastes pretty close to the original. Oh, and don't forget the toothpicks. You need them to keep the taquitos closed when frying them. (If anyone knows a better way, please chime in.)

If you're looking for a fish to grill, try the Chilean sea bass. It's firm flesh makes it an optimal choice. Serve along side this mango salsa for added spice and flavor.

Baked Jalapeño Poppers

  • Author: Cookie and Kate
  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 12 peppers 1 x
  • Category: Appetizer
  • Method: Baked
  • Cuisine: American

This lightened-up baked jalapeño popper recipe will be a big hit! They’re stuffed with fresh, herbed cream cheese, and topped with a crispy and irresistible barbecue potato chip topping. Plus, they’re vegetarian and gluten free. Recipe yields 12 stuffed peppers.


  • 12 large jalapeño peppers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • ¼ cup chopped green onion, plus 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ⅓ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese, optional
  • 1 big handful Kettle Brand Country Style Barbecue potato chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up. Cut off one-third of each pepper lengthwise (see photos). Use a small spoon (a serrated grapefruit spoon works great) to scoop out the seeds and membranes from each pepper, and discard those pieces.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese, ¼ cup chopped cilantro and green onion, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Stuff the peppers with the cream cheese mixture (you might have a small amount left over). Top each of the peppers with a small mound of cheese lengthwise.
  4. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and starting to turn golden.
  5. Meanwhile, place a big handful of chips in a food processor and process until the chips are broken into tiny pieces (or, you can crush them under a rolling pin). Stir the feta, if using, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of cilantro and green onion into the chips.
  6. Transfer the jalapeño poppers to a large serving dish and top each pepper with the crushed chip mixture. Serve!


Storage suggestions: If you have leftovers (which is unlikely!), they keep well in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days. Gently reheat in the microwave or oven before serving.

Prepare in advance: I haven’t tried, this, but I believe you could stuff the peppers in advance and refrigerate for later. When it’s time to bake, top them with cheese and proceed as written.

  1. Combine the ketchup, relish, and mayo in a mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Preheat a grill, grill pan, or cast-iron skillet.
  3. Combine the ground sirloin with 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper and mix gently.
  4. Without overworking the meat, form into four patties until the beef just comes together.
  5. When the grill or skillet is hot (if using a skillet, add a touch of oil), add the patties.
  6. Cook on the first side for 5 to 6 minutes, until a nice crust develops.
  7. Flip and immediately top with the cheese. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the burgers are firm but still yielding to the touch.
  8. Remove the burgers.
  9. While the grill or pan is hot, toast the buns.
  10. Slather the bottom buns with the reserved spread, then top each with a burger, caramelized onions, and pickled jalapeños.
  11. Crown with the bun tops and serve.

Eat This Tip

If you like burgers as much as we do, it's important to find the right bun for the base of your next masterpiece. We love potato buns, not just because their squishy, compact size holds a 4-ounce patty perfectly, but because they tend to deliver a good dose of fiber for a light caloric toll.

Take our favorite burger vessel, Martin's Potato Rolls. For 130 calories you get 2 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein. Compare that with whole-wheat buns, many of which pack 150 or more calories, and you'll see why we love the humble spud rolls so much.

What do you need to make jalapeño cheddar bread at home?

  • Instant yeast
  • Water
  • Sugar
  • All-purpose flour
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Pickled jalapeños

The ingredient list is super straightforward on this one. Most of these are probably already in your pantry, except the powdered milk.

Why do we add powdered milk?

Powdered milk is an ingredient I like to most (if not all) my homemade bread or dough recipes as it enhances the dough and gives it the most amazing bakery-like flavor. You won’t be able to tell it’s there but it certainly makes the bread a lot more soft and tender, which you will notice! It also gives the loaf a golden brown finishing on the outside so it’s picture perfect when it comes out of the oven.

Where can I find powdered milk in stores?

Powdered milk is usually found next to the sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk in the baking aisle.

How do you measure the flour?

I find the best method of measuring out flour for jalapeno cheddar bread is the ‘spoon and sweep method.’ Use a smaller measuring scoop or cup to spoon flour into a 1-cup measure. Then use a knife and sweep from one side of the measuring cup to the other to level it off. Do this 4 times to make a total of 4 cups.

What kind of pickled jalapeños can I use?

I used regular old pickled jalapeños found in the dressing and pickles section of any and all grocery stores. If you don’t want the bread to be too spicy, I suggest looking for a jar that specifically states ‘tamed’ or mild jalapeños. I used a few different brands while making this bread and though I did enjoy the spicy jalapeño bread, my favorite was when I used tamed or mild jalapeños.

What kind of cheddar cheese do I need?

I like to use yellow cheddar cheese. It’s up to you whether you’d like to use mild, medium, or sharp cheddar. Again, I tried a variety here just to be sure and my favorites were the mild and medium cheddar for this recipe.

How To Cook Crispy Bacon:

Our easy jalapeño poppers recipe calls for roughly chopped pre-cooked bacon. We love the contrast of smoky bacon, creamy cheese and spicy peppers. To make lots of perfectly cooked bacon at the same time, just bake it in the oven! Here’s how to cook bacon so that it’s perfectly crisp:

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
  • Set a wire baking rack on top of the baking sheet. This allows for more airflow while the bacon is cooking, which means lots of crisping.
  • Line bacon up on the baking sheet without overlapping.
  • Put the bacon in the oven and bake 20 minutes.
  • Carefully drain the bacon fat into a can or jar.
  • Allow the bacon to cool and then chop it up (or gobble it up). Store in the fridge for up to five days.


In a small bowl, mix together the butter, onions, garlic, jalapeño, basil, parsley, lime zest, and salt. If you’re not using the jalapeño butter immediately, refrigerate it until ready to use. Just before serving, gently melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat.

Preheat a grill over medium-high heat to about 400oF (205 ̊C). Place the clams directly on the grill. Cook just until the clams pop open, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove them to a platter or news- paper, discarding any clams that do not open. Spoon a little jalapeño butter over each clam and drizzle them with the lime juice. Serve the clams with toasted slices of baguette and the remaining butter on the side.

Want to see a step-by-step tutorial on how to cut and seed a jalapeño pepper? Here you go — just don’t forget to wear gloves.

Cutting jalapeños and got the burning hands that can come with touching their spicy oils? The first answer is: don’t get burned in the first place. Wear kitchen-safe gloves for the most reliable way to avoid that discomfort.

if you do feel the burn, then try rubbing your hands with one (or more) of these to dissolve the capsaicin that the pepper has left on your hands:

  • Olive oil
  • Alcohol
  • Dish soap
  • Weak bleach solution (Alton Brown recommends this one)

Health benefits of Jalapeño

Spicing up foods with jalapeños can be really good for you. Did you know that jalapeños can help prevent colds and headaches? Jalapeños contain a natural plant compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin helps boost metabolism, prevents bacteria growth, can help migraine headaches, and may even help fight cancer. Jalapeños also contain vitamin C and vitamin A.
