    Jalapenos not hot!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Ok well, I got a bunch at Wally World, fresh. Cut one up today and munched away. well, it tasted like a bell pepper!!!!!

    What the heck is going wrong in the world when they are breeding flipping Jalapeno's with NO heat!!!!????

    I've got to get my plants to growing ASAP!!!!!!

    Anyone else finding this disturbing? I will be going to our local grocer and see if I can get some with some actual heat.

    On a related note, the local Panda Express was forced to reduce the heat in their orange chicken because it was too hot. IN TEXAS????????

    If this keeps up were going to petition San Antonio to Weenieville.

    At least I can still get hot stuff at Taco Cabana, and a few other locals. A small concession.

    Were they organic jalapenos or anything?

    I often hear stories about ghost vipers, naga vipers, jolokias, scotch bonnets, etc... but I have no clue where to find them. I think I'm OK with just my thai peppers though, thanks

    Oh yea, Thai peppers, now theres a whole other world of pain!

    I love the taste of Jalapeno, and usually they are mildly hot, but I did some searching and apparently over watering can cause really mild flavor.

    Serrano's are a lot hotter, but the taste is so different. But roast those bad boys on the grill and yum!

    Serranos on the grill with some salt and olive oil, hell yea!

    You want some more heat with good taste, just get some habaneros.

    I agree though, for best results they should be home grown.

    I've got to try the salt and olive oil thing! I've just had them simply grilled!

    Habanero's do have good flavor, might have to pick up some soon.

    I do have some dried chilitepes, those things are nasty hot, got two bushes in the back yard, if I can get them before the birds do. The cardinals eat them by the dozens, at 50 to 100 thousand scoville units the birds are tough! We grind them up dry and add salt, black pepper,garlic and onion powder and yum! On chicken its wonderful.

    Yes! I do like Tobasco for some uses, but that vinegar is just too much for some applications. One nice thing, its always the same. I've never had an "off" bottle.
