Default Jalapeno Macaroni Salad

JALAPENO MACARONI SALAD

12 oz. medium size macaroni shells or elbows,
cooked and drained

Fresh green onions --I use about 3 or 4

I also add a little sweet white onion to this,

4 jalapeno peppers (deseeded) and diced fine
I use more because we like ours hot to the taste

salt and pepper to taste

garlic powder to taste (just a dash )

1 pint Real Mayonnaise--make it good and moist

Dice onions fine (I cut mine with the scissors)
or chop onions and peppers till fine in a food processor.
You want these in small pieces, not liquid.
Mix all together and chill overnight. So good !

We serve this around here all the time for BBQ's

Man, that sounds good. I love jalapenos and macaroni salad, so that's one I'll definitely try. Do you use pickled jalapenos in it, or fresh?

Use fresh jalapeno peppers. Another big love around here is sweet bread and butter jalapeno peppers...drained and whipped up with some cream cheese for crackers. We grow alot of peppers in the summer. You can buy jars of bread and butter jalapeno peppers around here or can your own in the summer. We are jalapeno pepper lovers.

That sounds like another good one! I've never heard of that one either. I love jalapeno and hubby loves bread and butter pickles-so that might be a good one for us, too. Do you just make it like bread and butter pickles?

Thanks for the recipe, sounds great. I like simple recipes with few ingredients and can't wait till june to try jalapeno/green onion combination (we can't buy fresh jalapenos here).

I have a friend who makes that salad for many summer gatherings and I just love it. I think she uses the pickled jalapeno.

That does sound good. The last two years I have grow Mucho Nacho jalapeno (hybrid) and it is just awesome. Huge and very productive. Great for poppers too. That is my fave hot pepper of all time and I am growing almost 80 percent of my hot pepper garden of those....try it ..you'll like it!

Default Chipotle

So I know a lot of you here have smokers so I was wondering if anyone has made chipotle peppers. They are just smoked red jalapenos right? I know they are often packed in adobo but I have recipes for that. I love how they taste in salsa, sauces, and mexican dishes.

I haven't tried to make them, but have been considering it since my jalapeno plants are putting out a ton of peppers right now, more than I can use fresh. I love chipotle powder so I'm hoping to make some of that this year. Don't have a smoker, but may try smoking them on the grill.

Default Caribbean BBQ Sauce

Caribbean BBQ Sauce

INGREDIENTS
2 scotch bonnet chilies, fresh or dried
1 cup orange juice
1 cup honey
1/3 cup soy or Worcestershire sauce
ginger
allspice
garlic
thyme

DIRECTIONS
• Blend together well in the blender and then simmer in sauce pan for 5-10 minutes.
• Let stand in fridge overnight for fullest flavor.

Zana’s Note:
This is not for the faint of heart – so if you want to tone down the heat, use a chili that is less hot than the scotch bonnets.
