Smashed Black Bean Tacos with Creamy Jalapeno Slaw

BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese with Candied Jalapeños

Last year for Christmas, I made these candided jalapeños to can and give away as gifts. They are addicting! Sweet, spicy, crunchy, and good on just about every type of food. I kept a couple of jars for myself and used them on sandwiches, tacos, salads; ate them on crackers with every kind of cheese that went … Continue reading BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese with Candied Jalapeños
