How To Gage The Heat Of Jalapeños
Most of the heat from jalapeños come from the seeds & membrane.
Follow these tips to gage the heat of a bowl of fresh flavor.
Remove the seeds & the membrane.
Remove half of the seeds & add the membrane.
Add all of the seeds & add the membrane.
Add the entire jalapeño.
If you need an exact measurement on the cilantro,
a 1/4 cup will do.
Use any tomatoes you may have on hand…don’t feel locked in.
I have an extra large food processor.
Prepare in batches, if necessary.
