Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Jalapenos…………….

So if heat is what you’re after, choose peppers with fine lines, and perhaps slacker skin for more kick. Likewise, look for younger, smooth skinned jalapeños for a tamer bite. And of course, you can always control the heat by choosing to add (or omit) the white pith within the peppers.

 

Avoid ones that are small or curved. Striations: Look for a jalapeno that is smooth without those small white or brown striations. This shows that your pepper is milder, younger, and received plenty of water while it was growing. Location: If you can find peppers grown in the USA, they have a chance of being milder.

 

Health Benefits – Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That’s what makes the peppers spicy.

Find healthy, delicious hamburger recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Green Chile Bison Burger
Take a trip to the Southwest with this juicy green-chile cheeseburger made with rich-tasting ground bison. You could make these with freshly roasted green chiles, but canned green chiles, which you can find near other Mexican food in most supermarkets, keep this recipe a snap to make when you’re in a hurry. Serve with a sliced tomato salad………………………..

Hand-Chopped Steak Burgers with Caramelized Fennel
Chopping steak instead of using ground beef to make these healthy burgers gives them a more toothsome texture. Come summer, give this a cooler spin by tossing the raw fennel with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil to serve alongside……………….

Jalapeño Popper Burgers
We’ve taken a simple burger recipe and made it pop with an easy three-ingredient jalapeño cheese topping. Ground sirloin is lean ground beef made exclusively from the center loin cut. It has less connective tissue than regular ground beef for a super-tender burger……………………..
