Are Jalapeños healthy for me?
Jalapenos are a popular type of chili pepper that are frequently used in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine. While they may provide a spicy kick to many dishes, they are also believed to be quite healthy. For one, jalapenos are rich in Vitamin C, which is essential for immune system health and skin integrity. They also contain capsaicin, a chemical compound that has been linked to a number of potential health benefits, such as improved digestion, decreased inflammation, and even weight loss. Jalapenos are also low in calories and carbohydrates, which makes them a popular choice for people who are trying to eat a healthy diet. That being said, it is important to keep in mind that people with certain medical conditions, such as acid reflux, may want to avoid eating jalapenos as they can sometimes exacerbate symptoms.
How do I know which Jalapeños are spicier?
You may not find a correlation, but generally smaller peppers have more capsaicin than larger ones. Also you may find that peppers that are smoother- and less stressed are less spicey, while peppers that look like they have ‘stitches’ (white lines)- may be stressed and hotter.
What if I find jalapeno peppers to be too hot for me?
Try Poblano peppers- they are much more subtle and savory
What are Jalapeno hands?
Don’t let “Jalapeno Hands” scare you away from our delicious Jalapeno recipes.
“Jalapeno Hands” or eyes could be a Shitastrophy! It could affect you- even hours after cooking. Though you may not feel a burn immediately, when you cut into a Jalapeno, capsaicin can transfer to your skin- and potentially any part of the body you touch- Especially painful if you touch your eyes- Wear gloves!
How do I avoid the Jalapeno Sting?
The best remedy is prevention (gloves), but if you ever have “Jalapeno Hands”, cool milk or yogurt can help relieve the burning sensation. Oil or hot soapy water can also help dissolve the capsaicin on your skin.
How long does it take for my jalapeno sting to wear off?
You will generally find a jalapeno pepper burn to sting for about an hour. If a burn is more severe, your burn sensitivity can last for several hours- especially if untreated.

Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Poppers with Alouette Cheese
- 10 Jalapenos (smaller bite-sized peppers)
- 1 6.5 oz Alouette Garlic and Herbs spreadable cheese
- 1 16 oz Thin-cut bacon
Ingredients to make Jalapeño Poppers
Make Easy Jalapeno Poppers
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
- Wear gloves- Wash Jalapenos, and cut lengthwise- I like keeping the stems on
- Remove the seeds and white pith from inside of the jalapeno halves
- Fill each pepper with Alouette cheese- mound slightly in the Jalapeno
- Wrap a half piece of thin-cut bacon around the bottom of each Jalapeno. Tuck the bacon behind the pepper and overlap the edges. You can also use a toothpick to hold them together
- Cook at 400 degrees until the bacon is fully cooked and crispy (approximately 15-20 minutes)
- Remove each popper from the tray and set them on paper towels to drain the bacon drippings
- Transfer to a serving tray and serve warm
