You can used these in any way you would use a regular jalapeno, plus in other thinks that you may be scared to use fresh jalapeno in. You can use them in salsas, salads, sandwiches, nachos, etc. These candied jalapenos of a balance of sweet and heat. If you have jalapenos in your garden or just love jalapenos, then you should give these a try.
