Fried Jalapeno Bites

Fried Jalapenos -- Supper for a Steal

Gearing up for the big tailgate #SundaySupper this is another of our favorite game day recipes. But these fiery bites of goodness don’t need to be saved for a gameday, sometimes we like to make a few appetizers and call it dinner. It’s a change up from the typical dinner routine for those nights you feel like you are in a rut. Do you see those spring rolls? Those are the Southwestern Spring Rolls I will be sharing on Sunday!

We have experimented with both fresh and pickled jalapenos and I think a mixture of both is my favorite. The fresh jalapenos are way hotter than the pickled. Eating all fresh jalapeno is a little too intense for me, but throw in a few pickled and I can handle it.
