Here's a nice Hot Jalapeño Mustard that you can use on your burgers, corn dogs or just about anything else you can think of. A good friend of mine likes to put this Jalapeño Mustard on her eggs! It sounded crazy when she first told me but once I tried it, I agreed!
As with all of my recipes that contain hot peppers - in this case, Jalapeños - you can control how spicy this mustard is by using more or fewer Jalapeños.
I also recommend wearing disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers. Avoid touching your face.
If spicy mustard is just not your thing, I have a delicious Sweet Mustard recipe you can try. Awesome on Corndogs!
🌶 How to Handle Hot Peppers
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
