Jalapeño Recipes That'll Make You Forget All About Sriracha

There's more to jalapeños than turning them into poppers.

There's more to jalapeños than turning them into poppers. Don't get us wrong: we love stuffing this small, spicy pepper with a gooey cheese filling, breading and frying it until it's golden-brown. But we also know that jalapeños have something more to offer. They can add a depth of flavor to many dishes, and it's for this reason that we truly love this chile pepper -- as well as its fiery kick.

While not everyone likes spicy foods, the jalapeño is one of those borderline peppers that can be prepared mild or insanely hot. We've tracked down jalapeño recipes for everyone no matter where their heat tolerance ranks, because no one should miss out on the great flavor of this pepper.
