I made these pickled jalapeños a few months ago, but hadn’t actually prepared a meal to use some of them until tonight. This is a simple recipe to put together, but woaaaaah are they spicy. I definitely have a weird spice meter, because for some reason, I can eat serrano peppers with no problem, but jalapeños tend to be too spicy for me sometimes.

I prefer my meat-to-bread-and-toppings ratio to be reversed. I had a pork tenderloin in the fridge, and I thought it would be fun to try to make a slider version of this Midwestern staple utilizing the 40-Minute Hamburger Buns that I made yesterday Continue Reading →
