I have been obsessed with jalapenos lately. I’m not sure what it is, but I have been adding them to everything. Thinly sliced on a toasted bagel with juicy tomatoes, avocado and thinly sliced red onion, thrown into hummus (scallion and jalapeno), added to salads, tossed with baby grape tomatoes and a small splash of vinegar. The list goes on and on.
Normally, I buy jalapenos, and although I love them, I forget about them until I find them all mushed in the bottom of the vegetable drawer. But not lately. I bought a bag of jalapenos, and have been enjoying my food so much more with a sprinkle of these bad boys. Maybe it’s the added crunch, maybe the small hit of spice. Maybe they add a little umami to dishes. Who knows.I just know that I love, love, love them!
Tomorrow night I’m grilling pizzas, and guess what I’m topping mine with? You’ve got it! Thinly sliced jalapenos, homemade sliced sausage, tomatoes and a little Daiya cheese. My mouth is watering! Yum!
I’ve actually read that jalapenos are supposed to speed up your metabolism, so maybe that’s it…
On another note, thank you for all of the awesome comments, both for the new book cover and the hair support. I appreciate it more than you know!
