The other pepper that I like to use to stuff, is a poblano. These are a very dark green and look gorgeous with the red salsa or ranchero sauce on them. These are dipped in a very light batter and deep fried until golden brown.
Candied jalapenos.....this is a food group all of it's own. I make these by the potful for my husband and friends and use the excess syrup for a surprise "kick" in several other recipes. All I can say right now is chocolate and "the spicy"......YUM!!!!
I also love to make tamales. I make these each year for the holidays and typically get orders for them. For fun, I make sweet dessert tamales with some sort of decadent sauce to go over them. The sauce will most likely involve a bottle of tequila, which is one of my favorite liquors.....ole`!!!!
