Q: Hi Dave,
About four years ago I was served some marinated red jalapeños in a restaurant. They were great… slightly sweeter and milder than the typical marinated green jalapeños. I finally was able to find out that it was an experiment by ConAgra, and had just been discontinued. Since then I’ve been trying to find another source, or to get a recipe that I can try myself this fall when the mature crop is available. Any ideas or suggestions you have would be most appreciated.
A: Hello Mike:
I’ve never tried this, but here’s what I’d do. Take fresh red jalapeños and cut them in half length-wise. Remove the seeds and stems and grill them until they are mostly cooked and slightly soft. Then I would marinate them in an Italian salad dressing, either store-bought or homemade. To serve, I would cut them into thin strips and serve them over a salad, or by themselves as a munchie. Hope this works for you.–Dave
