Jalapenos have a great flavor, they can enhance many different sauces, spices and foods. But, and it’s a big but sometimes, people come over for dinner and they just can’t stand the heat. Here’s a tip on how to serve jalapenos without the heat. This little tip will tame your jalapenos, leaving you with the pepper taste but very little of the heat. At my house I usually tame half the jalapenos, leaving the other half with the heat for those that love the burn.
To tame jalapenos all you need is jalapenos and some Sprite. I've never tried it with other lemon lime sodas, I was told to use Sprite, and that's what I've always used.
The first step is to remove the seeds and veins from the jalapenos. It doesn't matter if you cut them in half or not. Just remove the seeds and veins.
Put the jalapenos in a bowl and cover them in the Sprite. Put the bowl of japapenos and Sprite in the refrigerator for 24 hours. What you'll end up with are very mild jalapenos and a bowl of very hot Sprite. Don't throw away the Sprite, put it back in the bottle and keep it in the refrigerator. The "kicked up" Sprite makes a great spritz for ribs or other BBQ'd meats.
