It’s all about the Jalapenos……..


* When buying; Fresh jalapeño should be glossy and firm, with no bruising or soft patches.

* Fresh jalapeño should be kept in a perforated bag in the fridge – they’ll last for around 2 weeks. Chipotles will keep for a long time stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Chipotles will keep for a long time stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.

* Wear gloves (latex or other protective gloves) when handling jalapeños: The volatile compounds released when they’re sliced can burn hands, cause eyes to tear, and even irritate lungs.

* The longer you cook a pepper, the sweeter and less hot it’ll become. Don’t like your peppers that hot? Just cook them a little longer.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Chilaquiles

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week is Chilaquiles. Made with fried eggs, avocado, jalapeño, and even a little beer! It’s from the PBS/Recipe website. http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

 

Chilaquiles

This Chilaquiles recipe is a Mexican dish featuring fried eggs, avocado, and tomato sauce.Cooksrecipes 2
Ingredients
1/2 jalapeño
1 (15-ounce) can of crushed tomatoes (I had fire-roasted in my pantry and it was amazing, but definitely not necessary)
1 shallot, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1/3 cup beer
Salt
Pepper
Tortilla chips
1/2 cup Monterey Jack cheese
3 large eggs
1 radish, thinly sliced, as garnish
1/2 avocado, as garnish
Handful of cilantro leaves, as garnish
1 ounce cotija cheese, crumbled
Directions
1 – Place the jalapeño on the grates of the gas range. Turn the flame to medium and char the jalapeño, rotating it every 30 seconds or so, until blackened. Transfer the chile to a cutting board and using a knife, scrape off most of the charred bits and discard. Dice up the jalapeño, removing the seeds and thick membrane.
2 – To a blender, add the diced jalapeño, can of tomatoes and pulse until smooth.
3 – In a medium skillet, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Pour in the blended up tomato puree, beer and a pinch of salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, stirring frequently, until reduced by nearly half, about 10 minutes.
4 – While the sauce is reducing, preheat your broiler. On a parchment-lined (you could also use foil), spread out the chips in a mostly even layer. When the sauce is ready, spoon it over the chips. Use it all up! Sprinkle the top with the cheese and transfer to the broiler, until melty, about 3 to 5 minutes. (Be sure to keep an eye on it because it melts quickly!)
5 – Meanwhile, fry up a few eggs. When the cheese has melted, top with the eggs. Garnish with the thinly sliced radishes, avocado, cilantro leaves and cotija cheese.

Some Jalapeno Pepper Health….

 
Jalapenos are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are necessary for supporting and maintaining a healthy body and immune system.

 

* They contain vitamins C, K, & A as well as small amounts of vitamin E and B complex. The vitamin C & E also do double duty as powerful antioxidants in the prevention of disease and cancer.
* One jalapeno alone contains more vitamin C than the recommended daily dose for maintaining healthy tissue repair and immunity.
* They meet 7% of your daily potassium requirement and also contain the minerals magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, zinc and copper which are important for maintaining a healthy central nervous system and for developing strong bones and red blood cells.
