*Jalapeno peppers rank fairly high on the heat scale of hot peppers. Use caution when chopping or seeding fresh jalapenos; wash hands well after handling them, use rubber gloves, or try canned chopped jalapenos. Jalapeno pickle is a spicy mixture of sliced jalapenos, vinegar, salt and flavorings. Look for 12 oz. jars of jalapeno pickle in either the pickled foods or Hispanic foods sections.
