Jalapeño Corn Dip

How to properly cut jalapeño peppers
After cleaning and removing the jalapeño seeds, the rest is a short mix of mince and mix. It really doesn't take long! However, removing the seeds from a jalapeño is a delicate matter, literally speaking. Hopefully, this isn't your first rodeo cutting a jalapeño, but if so, take my advice from here on out. Some people think that the seeds retain all the heat, others think that the membrane is to blame. Knowing how to grow and cut a jalapeño properly will make your life that much easier. If you've ever inadvertently cut a jalapeño, you may have experienced accidental contact with your eyes or nose. Trust me, you don't want to experience this. If you are not careful, this could happen to you. To avoid this accidental tragedy, I suggest wearing gloves or holding the jalapeño with a paper towel while cutting. Make a longitudinal cut, exposing the membranes that hold the seeds in place. Then take a spoon and scrape the membrane, working from the bottom to the top of the pepper. Scoop the seed directly into the compost. Finally, WASH YOUR HANDS!
How to know when jalapeño is spicy
If you are like me and you like things a little spicy, you have been the recipient of the jalapeño that did not have a kick. On the other hand, you may have had the jalapeño that tasted like ghost pepper. So how do you know if jalapeño is spicy? The older the pepper, the spicier it will be. When looking at a pepper, the older ones will have stress marks, such as small white lines or stains on the meat. Younger (less spicy) peppers will have a clear, shiny flesh. So if you like them hot, choose the oldest pepper and if you like the soft one, choose the youngest.
This is one of my favorite dives of all time. Sometimes I fold the recipe and make two pans … one of them EXTREMELY hot by adding more jalapeño! No matter how you do it, it's always a crowd pleaser!
