Jalapeno peppers – I love these peppers not only are they HOT HOT HOT but their distinctive taste add exceptional texture to dishes. I made this dish for a friend for supper, recently – I sat him down and just listened to his problems. As a listening board, I hope I helped him give perspective – there is always a solution to what life throws at us, after all.
