Simple Jalapeño Dip Recipe

Here’s an easy to make jalapeño dip recipe that still delivers in taste.

The jalapeño peppers provide a nice mild to medium heat – just enough oomph to make the dip special, but not enough to scare off those who prefer milder fair.

If you want to increase the heat, you can opt for serrano peppers instead of the jalapeños. This will kick it up to twice the spice, easily, while providing a similar taste to the dip overall.

It’s not only sweet and spicy that works…

Minty and spicy works very well too! For instance, this jalapeño mint smoothie recipe is sure to bring a smile post-workout or as a healthy dessert option.

Simple Guacamole Recipe

Simple Guacamole Recipe

Here’s a very simple guacamole recipe that’ll have you out of the kitchen and eating some tasty “chips and guac” in fifteen minutes flat. There are multiple heat sources in this recipe. The jalapeño peppers provide the lion’s share of the spice, but you also get a little kick from the dashes of black pepper and cayenne.

You can eat it right away, but guacamole always tastes best after a little time in the refrigerator. It solidifies the dip and allows the flavors to settle together. An hour in the fridge is well worth it if you’ve got the time.
