Diced Jalapenos, in a jar.
That’s the newest spice from McCormick and I about fell over with happiness when I saw them for the first time.
You know how much I love my jalapenos. And while I do prefer to use them fresh (there’s just something about that crunch), I love the flavor of the dried and the convenience. Instead of having to de-seed and dice them fresh (and get the spicy peppers all over my hands which I invariably will rub my eye no matter how many times I try to remind myself to immediately wash my hands) I just poured them into my hand to measure and dropped them in. NICE.
Also, check out this fun Pinterest contest that McCormick is holding through the end of this month! They’re giving away 30 spice kits so you can try the jalapenos for yourself!
