Altered ingredient amounts. I was so suprised how good this was. I tuned it down a bit by only adding half of the fresh pepper, it was enough kick to enjoy! Be careful when cutting the Jalapenos, you can smell the heat. So good, it's a must try!!! - 29 Sep 2008


If you are looking for a mild hot chilli this is great! Very tasty, big hit! Next year I will try with chillis for other members of the family who thought this was too mild (I don't eat hot stuff too much so I thought it was quite spicy This recipe was indeed easy,I am very much a novice at cooking anything and am learning a lot by mistakes very quickly I think this recipe should come with a warning for people like me who don't know anything about cooking: When you boil those chillis open the windows turn the fan on and stand away from the stove (I choked everyone out of the kitchen with the steam that came from the pot), Also--I do know you should wear gloves when working with hot chillis but I threw caution to the wind in that respect--I thought I had washed it all off (washed many many times) but I ended up burning my eyes when I got up in the morning! and my fingertips started burning again each timeI washed my hands. Rub aloe vera on fingers thoroughly then wash off the goopy stuff, repeat if necessary (it took two times for me but then the burning was completely gone) - 29 Sep 2008
