Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Jalapeños are mid-range on the heat level index of chiles. Add 1 jalapeño first, and once mixed, taste the sauce to gauge your personal heat comfort level. Add the second jalapeño (or more), if desired.
  • tip 2
    Use rubber gloves when handling jalapeños and other chiles, as the oils can irritate your skin.
