We had some friends over for a cookout on Saturday night, during which one of our guests noticed that we "have a lot of food in our fridge."
As it turns out, there wasn't enough food in our fridge, because I could not produce the jalapeno pepper he was craving.
I don't usually cook with jalapeno. In fact there are only two recipes I use that call for it: 1) homemade salsa, and 2) a very special quesadilla made with fontina cheese. Neither of those items were on the cookout menu, so my friend was out of luck.
But now I know. I'll be ready next time!
