I’m slightly ashamed to admit it, but it took me way too long to get into the whole “jalapeño” hype. I was one a naïve little fool who believed jalapeños would be too spicy for me to handle, so I adamantly avoided them and every jalapeño dish I was ever confronted with.
Jalapeños on my Chipotle burrito bowl? Pass. Bacon-wrapped jalapeños? No thank you.
But thankfully that all changed the day I decided to give one appetizer, jalapeño poppers, a try. Now my love for jalapeño foods truly knows no bounds.
