I Am Sick of Jalapeno in Everything
« on: May 18, 2018, 03:22:50 PM »

I got some tarter sauce at Trader Joes the other day, and my fault for not reading past "tartar sauce", but opening it just now to put on my fish, it's jalapeno tartar sauce. Which got me to thinking that I am sick to death of jalapeno everything.

I don't know if it's nationwide, but where I live, I'm pretty sure you could even get jalapeno Lucky Charms. They do jalapeno or "extra spicy" in everything. I like spicy as much as the next person, but in moderation please. When I buy sausage, it seems like 80% of what's at the store is jalapeno or hot. can we please get back to offering stuff without jalapeno in it? Please?

It's to make up for jalapeņos not really being hot anymore unless you grow them yourself.  (I think we can blame the Aggies for that)

I agree with you, next thing you know they will have jalapeno infused toilet paper for those who don't eat them but want the morning after burn!!! ;)


BTW, I planted some chocolate ghost peppers this year and a local nursery has some Carolina reaper plants for sale...this may be the year of the big burn!!!

QFT.

I was on a long drive a few weeks back, and bought one of those starbucks energy drinks while at the gas station.
I took a drink and almost spit it out. Looking at the label it was called 'Mexican mocha'- what kind of *expletive* *expletive* *expletive* thought that adding jalapeno to a coffee drink was a good idea. It put me in a rage, so I guessed it worked.

I buy Habenaro snack sticks these days, to keep them to myself. The teen-aged scavengers in my house are immune to jalepeno, but habeneros are still toxic enough to keep them away.

I like spicy food. Actually, I love spicy food. You take me to the Korean restaurant with a good and proper tear inducing yukgaejang and I am a happy boy. And even what happens later is worth it.

But I like spice where it belongs. Not in my *expletive deleted*ing tarter sauce. Not in my *expletive deleted*ing ranch dressing. Not in my *expletive deleted*ing ketchup. *expletive deleted*it they even make tingly ass hot lube these days.

IMO not to go all natural foods hippy, but much like loading things up with salt and sugar, it's just a new excuse to cover up the flavor of *expletive deleted*it base ingredients in processed foods.

Think about how those of us who don't care much for spicy food feel about it.

I will admit to enjoying Tioga Sierra Brewery's Wanted: Joaquin Murietta Jalapeno beer, but yeah, it really doesn't need to be in *EVERYTHING. *

Sometimes you just want to have a burger/hotdog/slice of pizza without it.

But you know how these marketing types are, they strike while the iron's hot and keep striking until there's nothing left.

I've not really noticed the apparent overload of jalapeno in everything. I've seen it in a few products, but where you'd expect it to be... canned chili and sauces. Other than that, can't say that I've seen it locally. It's probably there, I've just not noticed it.

I thought the Jalapeno craze had passed years ago, followed by the chipotle-mania (or chip-ole-tay, for those who don't pay attention to Spanish pronunciation). We're past that now, and on to Sriracha, or ghost peppers, or something. One of the fast food places is doing Cholula fries now, so maybe that is the next thing.

I might be down with that. I loves the Cholula, though mostly as a breakfast condiment.

HEATHEN!! SCOUNDREL!! SCUM!!! You'll pry my jalapenos from my cold, dead hands.

MOLON CHILE!

p.s. - Ditto on Cholula. Between that and Emeril's Essence I am a happy dude.

Apparently it's available in 64 oz sizes right from the Cholula web site. That should last me most of a month.

The Cholula fries come smothered in cheese sauce - which brings us to the real culprit. Enough with the cheese already, folks. There's enough cheese. We don't need to constantly push the boundaries of where and on what we might put cheese.

There's never enough cheese. Especially on pizza. Judging by the last pie I got mozzarella must cost $8,000 a pound because they seem to dispense it by the sliver.

Earl Campbell's Hot & Cheddar. All the pig lips, cow bungholes, and chikkin entrails you could ever want in a single, delicious treat.

Likely not a single nameable cut of meat in them but they're darned tasty. Heat in the microwave or a few minutes on the grill, wrap in a warm tortilla, and enjoy with a side of good ol' yeller musterd.

I've had the Earl Campbell hot links before (I think they were red) without cheese.  They don't sell 'em around here, but I bought some when I was in Houston.  Made with only the cheapest cuts of alleged meat.  They were quite tasty :)

I should check walmart.com -- lot's of good regional foods are available online and they deliver to your local store.
